Bursting with one show-stopping number after another, Pippin is the magical, musical fairy tale featuring a fabulous score from three-time Oscar-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked). The Tony-winning musical follows the son of Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, as he struggles to find his life's meaning. Along the way, he samples the glories of the battlefield, the intrigues of political power and the pleasures of the flesh - all part of his quest to find out where he fits in. As narrated by a troupe of magical performers, this exuberant journey of existential fulfillment is one of Broadway's most enduring and beloved classics, and it's coming to the Berkeley Playhouse.
