Trivia

Several smaller numbers which appear in the original and current versions of the show do not appear in this version. One is entitled "There He Was" and is performed by Catherine when she first finds Pippin. Another is "Prayer for Duck" which Pippin sings over the body of Theo's dying duck, a sequence which is absent from this version. See more »

Quotes

Catherine: Do you feel you compromised your dream?
Pippin: No.
Catherine: How do you feel?
Pippin: Trapped. Which isn't bad for the end of a musical comedy.

A Masterpiece
20 October 1998 | by (Barrington, RI) – See all my reviews

This is one of the finest videos of a musical available anywhere. In addition to being an unbelievable musical, this top notch cast brings PIPPIN to an astounding level.

Particularly amazing is Ben Vereen... his singing, acting, and dancing abilities are on full display. Broadway legend Chita Rivera is also spellbinding in her small but show-stopping performance.

This is a musical not to miss!
