That's right theatre fans. One of Broadway's longest running shows is set to return to Broadway this Spring for the first time. Pippin, which opened on Broadway in 1972 and ran for 1, 944 performances is set to begin previews at the Music Box Theatre on March 23 with opening night scheduled for April 25. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the show here is a description of this ground breaking musical from the shows official website.
Everything has its season... and this season, PIPPIN returns to Broadway for the first time since it first thrilled audiences 40 years ago! With a beloved score by Tony Award® nominee STEPHEN SCHWARTZ (GODSPELL, WICKED) that includes the favorites "Magic to Do," "Glory" and "Corner of the Sky," PIPPIN tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory?
Direct from an acclaimed run at Boston's American Repertory Theater, PIPPIN is directed by DIANE PAULUS, director of the 2009 and 2012 Tony Award winners for Best Musical Revival (HAIR and THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESS). This captivating production features sizzling choreography in the style of BOB FOSSE and breathtaking acrobatics by LES 7 DOIGTS DE LA MAIN, the creative force behind the nationwide sensation Traces. Join us... for a magical, unforgettable new PIPPIN.
Now I have been a fan of Bob Fosse for as long as I can remember so I'll admit that I was a little unsure when I heard that this new production would not be utilizing his Tony Award winning Choreography. However the point of doing a revival is to make it fresh and new right? Plus you can't deny the recent track record of it's director Diana Paulus. Will this production of Pippin make it a three-peat for her? We will soon find out.
