Pippin on Broadway: Show Times and Tickets
Running since March 2013
The magic-themed coming-of-age musical, featuring songs by "Wicked" composer Stephen Schwartz, is back on Broadway for a 40th anniversary revival.
Winner of 4 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical.

The Broadway production of Pippin closed January 4, 2015. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

"Pippin" tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence, and features a beloved score including the favorites "Magic to Do" and "Corner of the Sky."

Diane Paulus, director of the Tony winning revivals of "Hair" in 2009 and "Porgy and Bess" in 2012, first staged this circus-inspired production at Boston's American Repertory Theater. In his Boston Globe review, Jeffrey Gantz said "contortionists sashay about, aerialists cavort overhead, performers juggle swords" and audiences discover "how magical the theater can be."


The original production of "Pippin" opened in 1973 and ran for nearly 5 years. It was staged by Broadway legend Bob Fosse, who earned Tony Awards for Best Direction and Choreography. Fosse's unmistakable fingerprints are all over this revival - in fact, the choreography is credited to Fosse protégé Chet Walker, "in the style of Bob Fosse."
