I've seen this show twice and it is magical. The songs, set, acrobatics and action make it a wonderful event. This musical is over 40 years old (Ben Vereen was the original leading player) and its current version is spectacular. You can certainly understand why...More

I thoroughly enjoyed this musical. The actors had astounding skills and the musical was choreographed to perfection. This was a spectacle I won't soon forgot.

The music is still fantastic and the story line still relevant... the talent of the performers: their voices, acrobatics, dancing, acting was completely AMAZING. I have found myself still thinking about it days later. If you like musicals, maybe even if you don't like musicals,...More

I have no idea where they can find the athletes who can sing, dance and contort their bodies to do amazing performances. The circus theatrics were amazing, the songs and storyline really fun and the actress who was the grandmother was mind-blowing doing tricks on...More

This show is wonderful. The music, the choreography, the illusions and all within an engaging story. Saw it during it's first run and hard to believe but I think it got better.

A pleasant enough show. To make up for the unmemorable score and flimsy bok the producers have given it a circus twist and much of the show is like watching Cirque du Soleil. Fantastic acrobatics and contortions but a weak second half made the evening...More

I enjoyed the music but my 14 year old daughter loved it more. She is a theatre nut and her theatre group will perform some of the numbers in her class. I liked that I never knew what was comming next.

Good performances. Excellent music. More circus performance than I expected but worth seeing. Andrea Martin won the tony and it's well deserved for her role as the grandmother. Fun for the whole family.

One of the best theatre experiences - ever. A new production that just adds to an already great story - - - not to be missed.

I show Pippin when it originally ran on Broadway, and I was really looking forward to seeing this new version. The new version, with it's circus theme is great. The cast, costumes, music are all wonderful. The circus components are (for me) better than cirque...More
