WINNER – BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL!
The enchanting musical PIPPIN will swing into the Phillips Center with a dazzling new production based on the revival originally directed by Diane Paulus (Waitress, Hair, Porgy and Bess). PIPPIN won four Drama Desk Awards® and four Tony Awards® in 2013, including Best Revival of a Musical.
This is PIPPIN like you’ve never seen it before. The show incorporates sassy choreography in the style of Bob Fosse and exciting circus acrobatics. The big top set and high-flying acrobats add to the spectacle, along with the knife throwing, hula hooping and gravity-defying balancing acts.
The magical score from Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriter Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked), which includes such hits as Magic to Do, Corner of the Sky, Morning Glow and No Time at All, brings the enchanted story of PIPPIN to life in this tale of a young prince’s search for passion, adventure and the meaning of life.
You’ll like this show if you like traditional Broadway musicals. This show is not for you if you prefer theatrical presentations with less spectacle, or are not a fan of Broadway musicals.
