Pippin The Musical

One Saturday in June, I went to TKTS to grab discounted tickets to Pippin the Musical. We hadn't heard much about it but, man, were we surprised. Think circus meets broadway. Pure magic! It's about a prince named Pippin who is on a journey to find the meaning of life. The plot was interesting and the music was catchy but, both Scott and I agreed that the best part was all of the crazy acrobatics and stunts. We watched with our jaws-dropped in astonishment. A few "get out's" and "no, they didn't's" left my lips during each scene. It's playing at the Music Box Theatre which is pretty magical in and of itself. 




I'm so glad my main man enjoys the theater just as much as I do. We were even more excited that we saw this show a week before the Tony Awards. Pippin was up for 10 nominations and took home four awards  - Best Musical Revival, Best Director, Best Actress (Patina Miller - Leading Player), and Best Featured Actress (Andrea Martin). Both are unreal.  And speaking of the Tony's...please tell me you saw the opening number? If not, do yourself a favor and watch this. I'm still in awe. NPH is such a star. 

Next on our list: Matilda, Kinky Boots, Motown the Musical, and Cinderella. Who's with us?!
