What does it mean to live an extraordinary life? This is the question that drives Pippin through the adventures of war, sex, politics and love – all the while guided by the malicious hand of the Leading Player. While the Players strive to steer Pippin towards the perfect, theatrically tragic end of his story, Pippin begins to discover what it truly means to be extraordinary in our world. Full of dance, passion, and Schwartz's iconic music (including "Corner of the Sky," "Magic to Do," and "Extraordinary"), Pippin is the ultimate theatrical experience that will leave audiences debating what boundaries are crossed for love.
