Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at Spencer Kiely, Bernard Dotson & More in ReVision Theatre's PIPPIN, Opening Tonight
Loosely based on the eldest son of Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne, the musical centers around a mysterious acting troupe, led by a Leading Player and tells the story of Pippin, a young prince searching for the meaning and significance of his life. Accompanying him on his journey are his doting grandmother, Berthe, devious but charming stepmother, Fastrada, and the woman he loves, Catherine. This classic piece of Broadway history from the creator of Wicked and Godspell will have all of the flavors of a high energy ReVision production.
ReVision’s cast features Broadway performers and ReVision Alumni. The production stars Spencer Kiely as Pippin who returns to ReVision Theatre after appearing in the 2011 production of Spring Awakening and Bernard Dotson (Broadway Highlights - Finian’s Rainbow, Chicago, Ragtime) as the Leading Player. Mr. Dotson was seen in ReVision’s 2011 productions of Xanadu and Dreamgirls. ReVision alumni Brett Colby (Rocky Horror Show) will play King Charles; Spiro Galiatsatos (Spring Awakening, Hair, The Full Monty, Dreamgirls) is cast as Lewis; Katherine Pecevich (Scrooge in Rouge, The Full Monty) is featured as Berthe and Hannah Shankman returns to play Catherine, having appeared in Revision’s 2008 production of Hair. Making her ReVision debut as Fastrada is Asbury Park resident Jeanne Montano who has happily been performing in Forbidden Broadway in New York, across the country and overseas for the past six years.
