The award-winning morning show The Balancing Act on the Lifetime Channel will turn the spotlight on the all-new Tony Award-winning Pippin, presented by Broadway Across America, in a featured segment airing on Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT). Viewers will have the chance to go behind-the-scenes of the production, as part of the "Broadway Balances America" series. This show will re-air on November 5, 2014 at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime.
The six-part special series "Broadway Balances America" will provide interviews highlighting the shows that are featured on Broadway Across America's 2014-2015 Broadway series nationwide - from Boston to Costa Mesa, from Houston to Minneapolis, and everywhere in between.
This third episode of the six-part "Broadway Balances America" segment focuses on the strong women behind Pippin and how they balance their lives in the demanding theatre industry. Interviews with Tony Award-winning Director Diane Paulus and Circus Creator Gypsy Snider highlight the creative process of developing a fresh, new Pippin for modern audiences. Viewers will get an exclusive look on-stage with Snider working with the show's Leading Player and various acrobats that make this Pippin truly extraordinary.
PIPPIN, Broadway's high-flying, death-defying hit musical, is now playing in New York City at the Music Box Theatre and across the U.S. on national tour. With a beloved score by Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), 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. This captivating new production is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Hair and The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess). It features sizzling choreography by Tony Award nominee Chet Walker in the style of Bob Fosse and circus creation of breathtaking acrobatics by Gypsy Snider of the Montreal-based circus company Les 7 doigts de la main (also known as 7 Fingers). Pippin is noted for many Broadway standards including "Corner of the Sky," "Magic To Do," "Glory," "No Time at All," "Morning Glow," and "Love Song."
PIPPIN, the most nominated Broadway show of 2013, won four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical (Diane Paulus), Best Actress in a Musical (Patina Miller) and Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Andrea Martin). Pippin won four Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Director of a Musical (Diane Paulus), Outstanding Choreography (Chet Walker and Gypsy Snider) and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical (Andrea Martin). Pippin won seven Outer Critic Circle Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical, Outstanding Director of a Musical (Diane Paulus), Outstanding Choreographer (Chet Walker), Outstanding Lighting Design (Kenneth Posner), Outstanding Actress in a Musical (Patina Miller), Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical (Terrence Mann) and Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical (Andrea Martin).
