Feats of acrobatics and breath taking dance sequences have made Pippin one of the most thrilling musicals of all times. It had its first premiere on Broadway in 1972 and at London’s West End a year later. In 2013, it was revived again at the Music Box Theatre where it went on to become one of the forty longest running shows in Broadway’s history.
The musical follows the story of Pippin, heir to the throne held by his distant father, Charlemagne. The audience is engaged by a character called the Leading Player along with a troupe. The Leading Player affects and sometimes forces the life choices made by Pippin in his quest to find fulfilment. In order to prove himself to his father, Pippin volunteers to go into battle with the King and his stepson Lewis. The horrors of war do not suit his nature, so he flees into the countryside. His stepmother, Fastrada, sinisterly involves him in a murder plot that changes his life. Saved by the widow Catherine and her son Theo, Pippin finds the solace he was looking for.
Since fall of 2014, the musical has been making the rounds at major theatres across the states. The US national tour is bringing Pippin to Orlando for performances at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Among the touring cast are notable names such as Sasha Allen, Kyle Selig, John Rubinstein and Sabrina Harper. So grab Pippin Orlando tickets and enjoy the show.
