Bay Street Theatre presents Pippin, the Tony Award-winning musical comedy by Roger O. Hirson with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz.
The musical is directed by Bay Street veteran Jack Hofsiss (Tony Award-winner for The Elephant Man on Broadway; Our Town, A Christmas Carol, You Can't Take It With You and the musical Splendora at Bay Street, among others). Based on the legendary son of the 8th Century King Charlemagne, the show tells the tongue-in-cheek coming-of-age story of Pippin who, on a quest for fulfillment, samples politics, religion, war, love and other pursuits before finding his true calling.
The musical styles of the show are varied and include rock, calypso, folk, R &B, and pop as well as traditional show tunes. Songs from the show include "Magic To Do," "No Time At All," "Love Song," "Morning Glow," "Corner Of The Sky," and "I Guess I'll Miss The Man."
