PIPPIN is the tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. Pippin is a young prince who longs to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power. In the end, he finds it in the simple pleasures of home and family. The energetic pop-influenced score bursts with one show-stopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers. PIPPIN is by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz, the creator of the Broadway hits WICKED and GODSPELL, and the animated films POCAHONTAS, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and THE PRINCE OF EGYPT, among many other musicals!
