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? The show is noted for many Broadway standards including "Corner of the Sky," "Magic To Do," "Glory," "No Time at All," "Morning Glow," and "Love Song." The original production of Pippin, directed by Bob Fosse, premiered on Broadway in 1972. It won five Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards, and ran for close to 2000 performances before closing in 1977. This production of Pippin debuted at American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) in Cambridge, MA, where Diane Paulus serves as Artistic Director, December 5, 2012 to January 20, 2013. It opened on Broadway on April 25, 2013.
PIPPIN will launch a US national tour in September 2014, at the Buell Theatre in Denver, CO. Productions are also planned for London, Australia and Amsterdam in 2015. The New Broadway Cast Recording for Pippin is available on Ghostlight Records.
