Pippin to make Broadway return this spring
Pippin is headed back to Broadway.
The original Broadway version starred Ben Vereen as the Leading Player, an emcee-like role that won him a best-actor Tony. It was directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse and starred John Rubinstein in the title role.
Producers of the revival that is currently playing at the American Repertory Theater outside Boston said late Thursday that Pippin will transfer to the Music Box Theatre this spring, reports Entertainment Weekly. Performances begin March 23 with an official opening on April 25.
