From Prince to King! Original Pippin star John Rubinstein revisits the magical musical as he steps into the Tony-winning revival beginning June 19, a day earlier than scheduled. Rubinstein will play Charles, Pippin's father. The Tony winner will join the Broadway big top at the Music Box Theatre through July 27, filling in during Terrance Mann’s leave of absence.
In addition to making his Great White Way debut in Pippin in 1972, 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 Rubinstein, 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.
