Gate Theater in SF
WELCOME TO THE CIRCUS
A young prince sets out on a journey to find the ultimate meaning of life in the vaudevillian spectacular of Pippin, from Godspell creator Stephen Schwartz. Told by a roving cast of an anachronistic acting troupe, the musical first wowed audiences in 1972, seducing them with the astonishing musical fable, set to a rousing 1970's rock score, including the hits 'Magic to Do' and 'I Guess I'll Miss the Man.'
With elements of surrealism and naughtiness, there is a moving core to this quest for fulfilment, told through a medieval fable that still connects with contemporary audiences. Revived on Broadway by director Diane Paulus (Porgy and Bess and Hair) this new incarnation of Pippin won four 2013 Tonys, and is now hitting the road for a bombastic and vivid tour of the USA!
