Pippin has found its corner of the sky on Broadway, starring Matthew James Thomas and Patina Miller in the first-ever revival of Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson’s hit musical. In a new, reimagined production directed by Diane Paulus, Pippin opens April 25 at the Music Box Theatre.
In addition to Thomas in the title role and Miller as The Leading Player, 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 production also features 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.” “This audience better get ready,” Miller told Broadway.com. “You’re about to be rocked!”
Pippin includes choreography by Chet Walker, circus creation by Gypsy Snider, set design by Scott Pask, costume design by Dominique Lemieux, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Jonathan Deans and Garth Helm and orchestrations by Larry Hochman.
