Pippin set for Reagle Music Theatre
Rachel Bertone, Artistic Director of Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston, announced the cast for Pippin, the 2nd and final production in the company's Summer 2022 season. Running from August 5-13, 2022 at the Robinson Theatre, 617 Lexington St. Waltham, MA, 02452, Pippin tells the tale of a young prince struggling to decide whether to pursue a peaceful life or to "make magic" with the dazzling troupe of performers that help tell his story. Pippin will feature a diverse cast of actors featuring Elliot Norton Award winnerDavron Monroe (2019, Breath & Imagination) as the enigmatic "Leading Player".
A mysterious performance troupe--led by the Leading Player--tells the story of Pippin, a young prince on his search for passion, adventure, and meaning. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh, and the intrigues of political power. In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day. The score (by Wicked and Godspell's Stephen Schwartz) includes "Magic to Do," "Corner of the Sky," "Simple Joys," and "No Time at All." Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz; Book by Roger O. Hirson. Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
