The highly anticipated engagement of the musical Pippin plays a limited two-week run at the Boston Opera House February 2 – 14, as part of the 2015-2016 Lexus Broadway In Boston Season.

The captivating new production comes straight from Broadway where it won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival.

Pippin is back for the first time since it thrilled audiences 40 years ago. With a beloved score by Tony nominee Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), Pippin tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory.

This captivating new production is directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus (Hair and The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess). It features sizzling choreography by Tony Award nominee Chet Walker in the style of Bob Fosse and circus breathtaking acrobatics by Gypsy Snider of the Montreal-based circus company Les 7 doigts de la main (also known as 7 Fingers).
