ABOUT THE SHOW
"PIPPIN" contains an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz.
"PIPPIN" is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary.
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince "PIPPIN" is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment.
He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great).
In the end, though, "PIPPIN" finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
