“Welcome Home,” indeed! John Rubinstein, who made his Broadway debut in 1972 as the titular character in Pippin, will step into the Tony-winning Broadway revival as Charles, Pippin’s father. Rubinstein will join the Broadway big top at the Music Box Theatre beginning June 20 in a limited engagement through July 27, filling in during Tony nominee Terrance Mann’s leave of absence.
In addition to starring in Pippin, Rubinstein received a Tony Award for his performance in Children of a Lesser God. His other Broadway credits include Ragtime, Getting Away With Murder, Love Letters and M. Butterfly.
Pippin features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Roger O. Hirson and tells the story of a young prince searching for his corner of the sky. In addition to Mann, the current cast includes Kyle Dean Massey as Pippin, Ciara Renee as Leading Player, Annie Potts as Berthe, Charlotte d’Amboise as Fastrada and Rachel Bay Jones as Catherine.
