Pippin Musical:::An [extraordinary] Review

Circus acts.
Magic tricks.
Dashing acts of human art.
Handsome men 😉
Beautiful ladies…
Story that warms your heart.
Do I have your attention yet?
A quick synopsis…
The dashing, young Pippin finished his education and wants more in life.
His father, quite the hilarious one, attempts to give advice. DENIED!

Pippin decides to experiment. Joins to fight. And other things…
Grandma is a feisty one and reminds Pippin he needs to live more. Love more. And even learn more.

The Ring Master of this spectacle — has a voice to be reckoned with and leads the show with dignitude. At this point in the story, she shows Pippin the newspaper (because there is never anything incorrect in the news…) exactly what his father, the king, is doing for the kingdom. Pippin realizes, is not happy about it, and decides to do take action.

Now, this lady is deceitful, but she can bust a move. His stepmother, Fastrada, has a way with her hips and uses them to her advantage. She uses her moves with the King, and her words with Pippin.
The acts continue, and the story moves along, Pippin finds some satisfaction…
but then I would be telling you too much!
Just remember to be extraordinary.
…and to find that, you don’t always need to look too far…
…happy Ray could join me for the show!
I absolutely loved Pippin. It is my new favorite musical.
The story, the characters, the lights, the glamour, the dancing, the music.
…and the ending. Remember, you don’t always have to look far.

Random tidbits, the actor that plays the King, was the original Pippin when the musical first debuted in 1972. The music, absolutely exceptional, and from the composer as Wicked. [no wonder I loved it so much!]
Since the pigs need their own show (and their own room, lol), play it safe and leave the kids at home. Humor galore, sights for everyone, and music to please any ear.
Pippin will be at the Straz Center now until Sunday, April 19th. You can visit HERE to find more details and to purchase tickets.
 [and I even had a quick moment of fame!
