A new circus-inspired production of Pippin is taking center stage on March 23!

Featuring music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Roger O. Hirson Pippin is slated to open on April 25 at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre.
In addition to Thomas and Miller, Pippin stars Terrence Mann as Charles, Charlotte d’Amboise as Fastrada, Rachel Bay Jones as Catherine, Andrea Martin as Berthe and Erik Altemus as Lewis. The company will also include Gregory Arsenal, Andrew Cekala, Lolita Costet, Colin Cunliffe, Andrew Fitch, Orion Griffiths, Viktoria Grimmy, Olga Karmansky, Bethany Moore, Brad Musgrove, Stephanie Pope, Philip Rosenberg, Yannick Thomas, Molly Tynes and Anthony Wayne.
Pippin tells the story of a young prince (Thomas) as he is guided on a journey by a mysterious group of performers, led by the Leading Player. The musical features a score of memorable songs including “Magic to Do,” “Glory” and “Corner of the Sky.” The production originally opened at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, MA on January 3 before transferring to Broadway.
