Saw the tour of Pippin a few weeks ago. K and I learned box seats have their drawbacks, as some of the magic might get a little lost when you can see the tricks. On the up side, it’s probably the only place suitable for a shot like this, shy of plopping yourself down in an aisle and lifting your feet in the air, of course. Either way, I’m simply pleased as punch to have finally gotten to see the show again.
Pippin tells the story of an extraordinary man trying to find a his purpose in life. A cast of players guides the audience, and Pippin himself, through glory, war, power, simple joys, love, and an ordinary life, along with a little magic. All of this, before attempting to deliver a grand finale that will remain seared in your memory forever.
