‘Pippin’ coming to EPAC

By on July 10, 2019

Bob Fosse’s version of “Pippin” is not just a Medieval fairytale. If you’re looking for an epic knight and a happy-ever-after, then this is not the musical for you. However, if you’re interested in a darker quest filled with existential quandaries and a brooding prince trying to find himself, then you’re in for a one-of-a-kind show.

Despite being an anachronistic musical set in Charlemagne’s France with a 70s pop music score, Pippin is known for being one of the most realistic shows because of its connection to the audience and real life issues. Hopefully, you’re comfortable with breaking the fourth wall and contemplating the hopelessness of life. But, even if you’re not, this coming-of-age story will be relatable to a whole generation who often feel there’s a lot more to life than the cookie-cutters wrap up and present to us.

“Pippin” is recommended for older teens and adults. It will be staged July 18, through Aug. 3, at the Sharadin Bigler Theatre, 320 Cocalico St., Ephrata. Tickets can be purchased at ephrataperformingartscenter.com or by calling 717-733-7966 x1.
