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) transferred to a sell-out season at the Southwark Playhouse 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…’


The show’s writer, Stephen Schwartz – who visited the production in London – said: “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.”
