A prince learns the true meaning of glory, love and war in this poignant musical allegory.


With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy-winner, three-time Oscar-winner, and musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, GODSPELL, CHILDREN OF EDEN), PIPPIN has been produced to great success on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, PIPPIN continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart the world over.

Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince PIPPIN is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day.

Equally as poignant as a black-box production as it is with splashy, spectacle driven extravaganza, PIPPIN's message is universal and will connect with audiences across the age spectrum.

Broadway audiences at the original production of Triumph Of Love were greeted by the sight of a huge gold cloth covering the set. During the music that opens the show, the cloth was slowly lifted into the flies revealing a stylistic topiary maze garden.
