They’ll Be Magic To Do! Pippin is Returning to Broadway

pippinThey’ll be ‘Magic to Do’ this March as Pippin, the classic Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson musical, comes back to Broadway after more than 30 years.

Directed by Diane Paulus, Pippin will begin preview performances on Saturday, March 23rd and officially open Thursday, April 25th at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street).

The show is currently playing through January 20th at the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) in Cambridge, MA, where Diane Paulus serves as Artistic Director.

I love the Original Cast Recording with Ben Vereen and have heard good things about the A.R.T. show. Can’t wait to see this!

In case you don’t know the story: Royal heir Pippin is spurred on by a mysterious group of performers to embark on a death-defying journey to find his “corner of the sky.”  The original production of Pippin, directed by Bob Fosse, premiered on Broadway in 1972. It won five Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards, and ran for close to 2000 performances before closing in 1977. The show is noted for many Broadway standards including “Corner of the Sky,” “Magic To Do,” “l Guess I’ll Miss The Man,” “Glory,” “No Time at All,” “Morning Glow,” and “Love Song.”
