1/7/14 - Pippin the musical is extending it’s run at the Music Box Theater in New York City until April! This production of Pippin won numerous Best of 2013 awards including the Tony for Best Musical Revival, and was originally slated to perform only until January. Lucky for Broadway junkies, its success has garnered demand in the Big Apple and across the nation. The tale of Pippin is one of the most exciting productions on stage, with circus/carnival styled sets, impressive costumes, acrobatics, heroics and show stopping musical dance numbers. Pippin will hit Phoenix in the month of March for about $94 minimum and San Francisco from September to October at the Golden Gate Theater, at $95 to start. Tickets for Pippin's primary showing in NYC are the most expensive by far, generally starting at $236.
9/3/13 - Originally performed in 1972, Pippin follows a young prince in the middle ages searching for meaning in life. The current revival Pippin tied for second place with four Tony Award wins and can be seen at the Music Box Theatre through January 2014. Because there are different versions of this musical due to licensing arrangements, “Pippin” is best seen while on Broadway.
Like many New York theatres, the Music Box is limited to just two seating sections: the mezzanine and the orchestra. Odd-numbered seats appear on only the left side of the theatre, and even numbers on the right. Dates in September have mezzanine seating available for $165. Orchestra seats start at about one hundred dollars more. Actually, this pricing trend maintains for all of the following dates running into December, only spiking around Christmas time. There is a show on Christmas Day but not Christmas Eve. Pippin tickets for the Christmas show start at $194 and the center orchestra section is priced at $241. This higher pricing maintains throughout the close of the show, which runs through December and slightly into the new year, closing with six shows January 1-5.
While other musicals are running longer this theatre season, in the six- or ten-month range, there are still many chances to see “Pippin,” a show that one theatre scholar has described as “largely underappreciated … with a great deal more substance to it than many people realize.” This is your chance to catch the real deal on Broadway!
