Pippin was Stephen Schwartz’ Broadway musical. Prior to Pippin, Mr. Schwartz had written the song “Butterflies are Free” for the award-winning comedy, Butterflies are Free. Mr. Schwartz is currently represented on Broadway with Wicked and the revival of Godspell. Pippin opened on Broadway in 1972 and ran for 1,944 performances. It garnered 11 Tony nominations and had five wins including Tony Awards for Ben Vereen, Tony Walton, Jules Fisher and Bob Fosse (2). In addition to Mr. Vereen, the original cast included Broadway veteran John Rubenstein, recently seen on TV in recurring roles in “Desperate Housewives” and “Harry’s Law”, the award-winning actress Jill Clayburgh and Irene Ryan, the iconic Granny Clampett on “The Beverly Hillbillies.”
Loosely based on the eldest son of Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne, the musical centers around a mysterious acting troupe, led by a Leading Player and tells the story of Pippin, a young prince searching for the meaning and significance of his life. Accompanying him on his journey are his doting grandmother, Berthe, devious but charming stepmother, Fastrada and the woman he loves Catherine. This classic piece of Broadway history from the creator of Wicked and Godspell will have all of the flavors of a high energy ReVision production.
