Broadway in Cincinnati brings Pippin to Cincinnati!!
Pippin is a high-flying, death-defying hit Broadway musical! Full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from the composer of Wicked, Pippin will lift you up and leave you smiling. This unforgettable new production is the winner of four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival. Hailed as “an eye-popping, jaw-dropping extravaganza” (NY1), it’s unlike anything you have ever seen! Come experience Pippin, one young man’s journey to be extraordinary.
Every aspect of Pippin is sharp, edgy and clever. “Fosse, Fosse, Fosse” comes forth loud and clear in the choreography, and the music is upbeat. The big top focused scenery is perfect for the gymnastics and acrobatics, which are absolutely amazing. The tapestry of color in the costuming lends such a bright, positive atmosphere.
Gabrielle McClinton as the Leading Player is outstanding. Her voice is clear and her footwork superb. Pippin, as played by Bradley Benjamin does an excellent job as well. Lots of nice harmony and the wording is readily understood. The audience appreciation for Pippin’s hot and sassy Grandma is so well-deserved.
All in all though, well worth seeing, Pippin makes for a lovely evening at the Aronoff.
