PIPPIN RETURNS TO ALBUQUERQUE
After a nine-year hiatus, the Tony-winning Pippin is back with a new production by Landmark Musicals (which presented that 2010 production) in eight performances beginning March 16 at the Rodey Theatre on the University of New Mexico campus.
With an infectiously unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz, Pippin is the story of one young man's journey to be extraordinary. Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival, this updated version continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world.
Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippinis 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). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
