Pippin Ponders Life Between the Ordinary and the Extraordinary on Broadway
Posted on Mar 27, 2013
How much can you put into any production and still follow the story line? This version of Pippin, the young prince, has everything but the kitchen sink in it. You hardly know where to look and when to follow Pippin as he ventures out on a death-defying journey to find his “corner of the sky”. Pippin must choose between a life that’s ordinary or a flash of singular glory.
That’s the party line. This version is the original on steroids and features choreography in the style of Bob Fosse and acrobatics by Les 7 Doigts de la Main, the creative force behind the nationwide sensation Traces.
The cast is wonderful with Patina Miller as the Leading Player. You loved her in Sister Act, and you’ll love her in this. Pippin is played by Mathew James Thomas, who is as much a heart throb for the teen set as he was in Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark. Terrence Mann portrays Pippin’s father, Charles. Andrea Martin brings the house to its feet as Berthe with her show stopping performance.
Audience: The young and young at heart who love an evening packed with as much as possible.
