Join us... for this magical, unforgettable production the New York Times declared "Astonishing! A PIPPIN for the 21st Century."
The 2013 Tony Award winner for BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL is back for the first time since it thrilled audiences 40 years ago. With a beloved score by Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, WICKED), PIPPIN tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory.
