Performance + Music
November 6, 7, and 8, 8PM
Kiplinger Theatre, Schwartz Center for the Peforming Arts
The Melodramatics Theatre Company, in association with the Flexible Theatre Company, presents Pippin, directed by Cornell University Visiting Lecturer Emily Ranii '07.
With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children Of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (TONY, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, Pippin continues to captivate and appeal the young at heart throughout the world.
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in 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, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day.
