Stephen Schwartz's musical receives its first Broadway revival.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Miller, with her lithe body and megawatt smile, makes the Player both temptress and confidante, guiding Pippin with her siren's voice and sharp, sinuous dancing through a string of seductive but finally unfulfilling life choices.’’
‘‘It's amazing how Chet Walker's Fosse-inspired choreography blends seamlessly with the hand-walking, knife-throwing, backflipping, human-jump-roping antics of the enviably limber cast.’’
‘‘When the cast sings, by way of invitation in the opening number, ‘Join us, come and waste an hour or two,’ it's highly recommended you do so. Little can get the blood going this way.’’
‘‘Of all the cast members who aren’t acrobats, though, it’s the veteran comic actress [Andrea] Martin who truly scales the heights. Berthe, Pippin’s foxy granny, has only one big song and scene to call her own, but, boy does she own it.’’
