The New Pippin brings Broadway to a New Generation
I feel truly blessed that I managed to watch this performance. As I was only familiar with Stephen Schwartz's work, I was amazed by this performance that seemed geared towards bringing Broadway into the minds of a new audience. The music has been modified for the 21st century, featuring work on synthesizers and much heavier guitar work. Patina Miller is fantastic, her voice bringing a gravity and humor to the role of the leading player. Cannot recommend this enough.
Saw the show in New York! It's magical! Can not wait for the cast recording! Loved the show, can't wait to love the album!
A musical production that changed my life
Not since "Rent" has a show absolutely impacted my way of thinking about the genre of musical theatre. When I saw "Pippin", I was going because I had heard it was an iconic show and I had seen Patina Miller in 'Sister Act" and loved her. However, she has proven herself to be an astounding actress, making the role of the Leading Player her absolute own. The way that Diane Paulos does this production is incredible. When I left the Music Box Theatre, I realized that this was the reason I go to the theatre. Bravo!
