Why See Pippin?

Welcome to the circus

A young prince sets out on a journey to find the ultimate meaning of life in the vaudevillian spectacular of Pippin, from Godspell creator Stephen Schwartz. Told by a roving cast of an anachronistic acting troupe, the musical first wowed audiences in 1972, seducing them with an astonishing musical fable set to a rousing 1970's rock score, including the hits 'Magic to Do' and 'I Guess I'll Miss the Man.'

With elements of surrealism and naughtiness, there is a moving core to this quest for fulfilment, told through a medieval fable that still connects with contemporary audiences. Revived on Broadway by director Diane Paulus (Porgy and Bess and Hair) this new incarnation of Pippin won four 2013 Tonys, and is now hitting the road for a bombastic and vivid tour of the USA!

Roll up, Roll up, the story of pippin

A young and dreamy prince named Pippin is unhappy with his lot. Overlooked by his errant father King Charles, and mocked by his family, he wants to learn the meaning of life, and takes on a series of thrilling challenges to prove himself. He becomes involved in a war and switches sides to become a revolutionary, whilst leaving a trail of broken hearts all over the land. But perhaps excitement and freedom isn't the key to living, and maybe its modesty that will fill the void.
