A ticket buys you not just a musical but also a trip to the circus.
In 2013 Broadway's favorite high-flying, circus-inspired musical, Pippin, finally returned! This This acclaimed revival opened over 35 years after the original Broadway production closed, but managed to match its predecessor's success by scooping up an impressive TEN 2013 Tony Award nominations of which it won four, including Best Revival of a Musical and Best Direction of a Musical.
Set to a toe-tapping pop-rock score, Pippin is one musical that doesn't just ask its cast to act, sing and dance but sees them performing acrobatics right on stage as they tell the inspiring story of the young Prince struggling to make his life his own. The original Pippin ran on Broadway for almost five years, winning five Tony Awards in 1973. This revival premiered at the American Repertory Theater before making the move to the Great White Way.
A flamboyant group of travelling performers introduce us to Pippin, a young prince who is determined to break free from the expectations of his father, Emperor Charlemagne, and discover his own destiny. Together with the Leading Player, who narrates Pippin's tale, we learn of his struggles with family, duty and love to carve the right path for this future.
The song 'Morning Glow' was covered by Michael Jackson and included in his 1973 album, Music & Me!
