New York--Google's office on Eight Avenue hosted a conversation with Tony Award-winning musical revival Pippin's new lead stars Kyle Dean Massey (Pippin) and Ciara Renee (Leading Player), together with original cast members Bethany Moore (Player, Catherine understudy) and Orion Griffiths (Player, Acrobat), earlier today, which was streamed live on YouTube, moderated by Google's Alan Seale and YouTube Next Lab's Mark Douglas.
Check out the recorded session below starting at 16:13.
Talks at Google, originally called "Authors@Google," began in 2005, which brought in innovative authors to speak at Google. The series has since expanded to include musicians, filmmakers, chefs, and innovators, among others.
The new production of Pippin, which features music by Stephen Schwartz and book by Roger O. Hirson, is directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus. Tony Award nominee Chet Walker does the choreography in the vaudeville style of Bob Fosse. Gypsy Snider of the circus company Les 7 doigts dela main (7 Fingers) also integrates circus acts into the production.
PIPPIN currently plays at the Music Box on Broadway (239 W 45th St.).
The producers behind the show recently announced that they are set to launch a US National Tour in September 2014, premiering at the Buell Theatre in Denver, Colorado.
