The story of Pippin is about a young man and magic. Pippin is like a circus because it has acrobats and magic.
Diane Paulus is so brilliant because everything in Pippin is so lively . Most actors in this show are acrobats. The magic tricks are amazing because the audience doesn’t know how they do it. For example in one scene a woman’s legs walked across the stage without the top of her body.
The music is classic1980s because Pippin's first show happened then. The most famous song is “No Time at All.” My favorite song is “Corner of the Sky” because it is really beautiful and it means that somebody needs to find them self.
Matthew James Thomas is a believable character because he is honest about being confused about his life. He doesn't know what his life means. He needs to find something in his life. By the way, he sings “Corner of the Sky” because he doesn’t know about his life.
I give this play 6 Escapes for my review. It’s playing at the Music Box Theatre.
