After failing out as a warrior, a young prince named Pippin goes on an epic journey of self-discovery replete with sex, drugs, murder, and, of course, singing and dancing. Pippin's quest to be extraordinary is set to an unforgettable score by four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell) and features blistering new, Fosse-style choreography. Though it had its Tony Award-winning Broadway debut in 1972, Pippin feels utterly current; asking us where we can look to find light through darkness and hope through uncertainty.
