The acclaimed Broadway musical is, at last, finding new life: a re-imagined production of Stephen Schwartz and
Roger O. Hirson’s extraordinary musical PIPPIN, directed by Diane Paulus and immersed within the colorful world of acclaimed Montreal-based circus troupe, Les 7 doigts de la main. PIPPIN has not been seen on Broadway since the enormously popular original 1972 production which ran for five years, gathering critical praise and multiple awards including 5 Tony Awards (11 nominations) and 5 Drama Desk Awards. Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson’s beloved coming-of-age musical is directed by Diane Paulus with circus choreography by Gypsy Snider of the Montreal-based circus company Les 7 doigts de la main (also known as 7 Fingers) and choreography by Chet Walker in the style of Bob Fosse. The cast is led by Matthew James Thomas as Pippin, with
Erik Altemus as Lewis, Andrew Cekala as Theo,
Charlotte d’Amboise as Fastrada, Rachel Bay Jones as Catherine, Terrence Mann as King Charles, Andrea Martin as Berthe and Patina Miller as the Leading Player.
