music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Tony Award-winning Pippin is the coming of age story of a young prince longing to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, he finds the simple pleasures of home and family. Featuring music from the Tony and Oscar-winning composer of Wicked and Godspell, Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and The Prince Of Egypt, the energetic pop-influenced score bursts with one show stopping number after another.
