The five-time Tony Award-winning musical PIPPIN is an electrifying, tongue-in-cheek fairy tale that dazzles audiences with a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds.
Prince Pippin, son of Charlemagne, embarks upon a quest for true fulfilment, seeking his own corner of the sky. He relishes the glories of the battlefield, savours the temptations of the flesh and embroils himself in political intrigues. But neither war, sex, revolution nor domesticity can satisfy him - or so he thinks.
Stephen Schwartz's energetic pop influenced score bursts with one showstopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers.
Cynical and poetic at the same time, PIPPIN is a sharp and insightful look at the struggle of every person’s journey to find contentment in life.
