'Pippin' on Broadway worthy of its 10 Tony nominations

The revival of "Pippin" is a celebration of everything right about musical theater -- fabulous choreography, a true sense of fun, Patina Miller and acrobats. And it's easy to see why this came in with 10 Tony nominations, just after "Kinky Boots' with 13, and "Matilda" with 12.

"Pippin" has been updated since the show ruled on Broadway for five years in the 1970s, and made Ben Vereen a star. Now Miller plays the role Vereen had, as Leading Player, justifiably earning her second Tony nomination. She's the circus ringleader, narrator and star. Pippin, son of Charlemagne, who is called Charles in this, is on a quest to find meaning in life. He's educated, sweet and earnest. Here, Matthew James Thomas (Broadway's "Spiderman") plays the title role. 

Stephen Schwartz' music and lyrics, Roger O. Hirson's book, Diane Paulus' direction and Chet Walker's choreography are flawless. Set under a big top, »
