reviews PIPPIN National Tour ASU/Gammage

For information on this production click here.

"an exceptional production and features several performers who come to the tour straight from the Broadway cast.  Is Pippin a perfect show? No, but it is one with many magical and memorable moments and when combined with Diane Paulus' re-energizing of the material with her circus theme it elevates it into a joyful and dazzling experience of a story of self-discovery." -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway

"a marvelous production that artfully mimics the excitement the show displayed in New York.  It’s rare that a tour measures up to Broadway.  This marvelously creative production helmed by director Diane Paulus explodes all over the huge Gammage stage. The cast couldn’t be better starting.  Don’t miss it."
-Chris Curcio, KBAQ

"it has all the musical pop and acrobatic flair you could ask for. The cast is terrific, starting Kyle Dean Massey in the title role, which he also played on Broadway. Singing in a gorgeous, soaring tenor, he brings irresistible aw-shucks charm to his character, a restless idealist on a quest to make his life "Extraordinary."  -Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic
