The 2013 revival cast album recording has yet to be officially confirmed, but it certainly seems more than merely likely to happen at this point given this exciting new announcement.

PIPPIN features a score by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Roger O. Hirson. The musical previously ran for nearly 2000 performances on Broadway in its original production in the 1970s, directed by legendary choreographer/director Bob Fosse.

Lauded HAIR revival helmer Diane Paulus has directed this American Repertory Theatre production of the Charlemagne-centric musical which will be transferring to Broadway in a few short weeks, starring Matthew James Thomas in the title role, along with Leading Player Patina Miller and a starry cast that also includes Andrea Martin, Terrence Mann and Charlotte D'Amboise.

The revival of PIPPIN is scheduled to open March 23 at the Music Box Theatre.
