Pippin - National Tour

The Tony-winning revival of Stephen Schwartz's musical.

Let's Swing! Tony Nominee Adrienne Barbeau Flies Into the National Tour of Pippin

A new flying Granny is hitting the road! Tony nominee Adrienne Barbeau will join the national tour of Pippin as Berthe beginning March 31 in Fort Lauderdale. Tony winner Priscilla Lopez will play her final performance in the show on March 29.

Barbeau received a Tony Award nomination for her performance as the original Betty Rizzo in Grease on the Great White Way. She also appeared in the original Broadway production of Fiddler on the Roof and on the 1970s TV series Maude.

The tour cast of Pippin features Sasha Allen as Leading Player, Sam Lips as Pippin, Tony winner John Rubinstein as Charles, Sabrina Harper as Fastrada and Kristine Reese as Catherine.

Pippin is directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus and features choreography by Tony nominee Chet Walker in the style of Bob Fosse and circus creation by Gypsy Snider of the Montreal-based circus company Les 7 doigts de la main (7 Fingers). With a book by Roger Hirson and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Pippin tells the story of a young prince on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory?
