Prince Pippin craves passion and adventure only to find that magic can be nearer than you imagine. When the world around you is mired in fawning fans, click-bait worthy headlines, and televised scandals, how does the heir to the Frankish throne make his mark on the world? With songs like “Corner of the Sky,” “Love Song,” and “Magic to Do,” you won’t want to miss this ensemble’s finale with Pippin’s greatest performance of his life. “The story centers on Pippin, the oh-so-sensitive son of 8th century King Charlemagne as the prince seeks to find his life’s fulfillment and live an extraordinary life…Thematically, it’s an epic struggle between finding fulfillment in celebrity or pursuing more ordinary, human concerns… it’s a scene of pure theatrical bliss.” – Frank Rizzo, Variety Single tickets on sale now.
