Description

PIPPIN

Book by Roger O. Hirson
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Directed by Meg Phillips

In this play-within-a-play, the young prince Pippin (and the actress who plays him) are in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. Pippin seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power, while the actress who plays him seeks it on stage and on screen. The sinister Leading Player, however, has a different definition of extraordinary...

PUBLISHER'S SYNOPSIS:
With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated circus-inspired version of Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
