BWW Reviews: Magical PIPPIN at the Peabody Opera HouseBWW Reviews: Magical PIPPIN at the Peabody Opera House
by Chris Gibson - Dec 13, 2014

Combining acrobatics with choreography (by Chet Walker) that recalls Bob Fosse's original work on the show, the current touring company of PIPPIN(book by Roger O.

There's a circus-like quality (courtesy of Gypsy Singer) to this presentation that's unexpected, and even a bit magical, making it more suitable for the younger set than some versions, even though most of its sexier elements are still firmly intact. It's certainly well worthy of your time and attention. (more...)
