Stephen Schwartz performs some of his own songs and discusses how Pippin is relevant today. The musical is a tongue-in-cheek fairy tale that dazzles audiences with a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds. Prince Pippin, son of Charlemagne, embarks on a quest for true fulfillment seeking his own corner of the sky. He relishes the glories of the battlefield, savors the temptations of the flesh and embroils himself in political intrigues. But neither war, sex, revolution, nor domesticity can satisfy him -- or so he thinks.
