Southwark Playhouse

23 FEB – 24 MAR 2018

The dazzling production of the Tony Award-winning musical PIPPIN at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre, transfers to SOUTHWARK PLAYHOUSE for one month only, from Friday 23 February 2018 – Saturday 24 March 2018 (press night Wednesday 28 February 2018 at 7.30pm.)

Vaudeville, magic, comedy, romance – life is an adventure and Pippin has it all.

Jonathan O’Boyle’s acclaimed production of the multi-Tony Award-winning musical Pippin by Grammy and Academy Award recipient Stephen Schwartz (composer of the global smash hit Wicked) will transfer to Southwark Playhouse’s Large space in spring 2018.

A soul-searching exploration of one man’s journey to find himself, his place and purpose in life, Pippin is a musical about an ordinary man on an extraordinary journey. Featuring a stunning score including classics Magic to Do and Corner of the Sky, Pippin was originally directed by the great Bob Fosse and recently completed a hugely successful Broadway revival. This new production spreads a darkness over the innocent tale of the exciting life and adventures of young Prince Pippin, told by a mysterious troupe of Victorian Vaudeville players who promise the audience ‘a finale you will remember for the rest of your lives…’

***** ‘A GREAT MUSICAL. Profound and moving’ 

Mark Shenton, The Stage

Stephen Schwartz says: "I am so pleased that such a successful and well-received production of Pippin has finally happened in the UK, and I'm incredibly excited to be sharing it with a London audience."

Pippin will be the third production from Manchester’s Hope Mill to transfer to London’s Off-West End in under a year, including Yank! and Hair (which has just won the WhatsOnStage Best Off-West End Musical award).
