Our first musical and I would recommend this one. It had a good story but also included humor, magic, and acrobatics. We sat upper mezzanine level but didn't appear that there are any bad seats in the Music Box Theater.

When Pippin first opened (somewhere back in the '70s I think) I had the opportunity to see it twice. It had starred Ben Vereen as the lead player. I was anxious to see this production to see if it lived up to the original. There...More

I will say at the outset that we had some mixed feelings about this. One of us had never seen pimping before, and disliked the show. The other has seen it as a school production, and as the televised version with Ben Vereen and William...More

I thought the singing and acting was great. I liked the story line and the humor. The characters are potent and engaging. The style is different than the prototypical Broadway show.

This is the 3rd time I've seen Pippin but this was the best production. Loved everything about it and I can't imagine seeing another Pippin after this. I really want to get the soundtrack now so I can relive it later.

This mix of Cirque du Soleil, magic, humor and great music provides adult entertainment at its best. While we loved the show, we would suggest Wicked, Chicago, Les Miserables or other popular musicals if those have not been seen.

I a not the best person to judge this kind of spectacles, but I gave this score compared with The Phantom, Cats, Adams Familly, Evita, Chicago and others that I think they were better

I had no idea what to expect from Pippin and I was pleasantly surprised. The first act is funny, fun to watch, and visually stunning. I loved the costumes and the set design. The stage is set up like a circus tent and everything happens...More

While it is a little difficult to find a story line, the message is clear at the end. The enthusiasm is contagious, the one liners are good, the leads are extremely talented.
