Powered by music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked”), “Pippin” follows Prince Pippin, the eldest son of Charlemagne, a mighty and brutal king, as he searches for the meaning of life. Though this story has been told before, this adaptation features anime light projections, incredible street dancing and stand-out vocal and groovement performances by leading player Marcus Choi and Ethan Le Phong as Pippin. Plus, an appearance by Gedde Watanabe (Sixteen Candles’ Long Duk Dong)!
