Accompanied on stage by a live band, our troupe of performers bring you the story of Pippin, the eldest son of King Charlemagne, a young prince in pursuit of an extraordinary life. They lead our hero through adventures and misadventures as he explores war, love and politics in his search for meaning and fulfillment. Filled with musical gems and witty dialogues, this 1970s Tony Award-winning show from the creator of "Wicked" and "Godspell" was revived on Broadway in 2013 and is a delightful music and dance spectacle – a deep and yet humorous coming-of-age story that will resonate with audiences of all ages.
