A timeless classic of the American stage, the musical Pippin is currently experiencing a resurgence in popularity thanks to its latest national revival. A multiple Tony and Drama Desk award nominee and winner (both for the original production and the revivals), Pippin's story concerns the title character's existential search for meaning and happiness in the world. While the boy Prince Pippin seeks fulfillment within the world he inhabits in the play, a troupe of actors metafictionally comment on the proceedings, sometimes to assist Pippin on his journey and other times to mock characters or events. Often times, the troupe's Lead Player will break the fourth wall to communicate directly with audience members, commanding their attention while drawing them into the story. Pippin is the 32nd longest running Broadway show, which is no small feat considering how many prestigious productions have graced the "Great White Way" over its illustrious history. Thanks to the recent national touring company's efforts, theatergoers who love lavish musicals combined with an original story can now see the revival of Pippin all over the United States.
