PIPPI LONGSTOCKING: THE FAMILY MUSICAL to Play Main Street Theater, 6/8-8/3
Based on the novel by Astrid Lindgren, PIPPI LONGSTOCKING: THE FAMILY MUSICAL will play Main Street Theater - Chelsea Market, June 8 - August 3, 2014. Adapted for the stage by Sebastian and Staffan Gotestam, the show features music and lyrics by Sebastian and will be directed by Jimmy Phillips.
Pippi Longstocking lives alone (with a monkey!) in her wacky house, Villa Villekulla. When she's not dancing with the burglars who were just trying to rob her house, she's attempting to learn the "pluttification" tables at school; fighting Adolf, the strongest man in the world at the circus; or playing tag with police officers. Pippi's good-natured hijinks cause as much trouble as fun in this bubbly, slapstick musical for the whole family!
