Pippin on Broadway – Curtail Call

What happens when you mix Cirque du Soleil with Bob Fosse? You get Pippin on Broadway.

I’m not sure that having a circus troop tell the tale of Charlemange’s son makes any sense.  At least there is a unifying story, unlike Fosse’s Chicago.

Pippin’s quest for meaning includes parts which were exciting and entertaining.  And, then there was the trapeze sex and the orgy in a cage.  It’s an interesting but ultimately exhausting bag of tricks.  I am glad that I saw Patina Miller, Andrea Martin and Matthew James Thomas before the cast changes.  And, there were plenty of Jazz Hands. 

Considering I have seen several Broadway productions this season, my favorite is still Kinky Boots.  It’s easily the best musical of the year!
