For the first time in 40 years, the magic musical Pippin
is back on Broadway. This dazzling new production from Diane Paulus, the director of the Tony-winning revivals of Hair
and Porgy and Bess
, arrives in New York after an acclaimed run at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass.
The show incorporates sexy choreography in the style of Bob Fosse and exciting circus acrobatics from Les 7 Doigts de La Main, the Quebec-based troupe behind the sensational spectacle Traces
. The joyful score from Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriter Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked
) includes such hits as “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” “Morning Glow” and “No Time at All.”
Pippin is an idealistic medieval prince searching for his identity who’s led by a troupe of players on a journey of self-discovery. Will he succeed as warrior, politician, farmer or lover, or just go down in a final blaze of glory?
Newcomer Matthew James Thomas stars in the title role along with a stellar cast, including Patina Miller (Sister Act
), Tony winner Andrea Martin (My Favorite Year, Oklahoma!, Candide
), Terrence Mann (Cats, Les Miserables
) Charlotte d’Ambois (Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, Chicago

“Anyone who’s seen this production knows how magical theater can be,” wrote the Boston Globe
. “This production melds extraordinary circus acrobatics and magical illusions with ‘ordinary’ virtues like accomplished acting, singing, and dancing.”
