November 1, 2020 - January 31, 2021 All day

From 24 November 2020

PIPPIN is headed to the Sydney Lyric this November – See it First!

Music & lyrics by WICKED’s composer, Stephen Schwartz – Tickets are now on sale‌

As many WICKED devotees know, our Grammy and Academy award winning composer Stephen Schwartz is also the genius behind PIPPIN. Now, PIPPIN is coming to Sydney!

The Tony Award® winning PIPPIN will premiere at the Sydney Lyric at The Star in November 2020.

Full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from Stephen Schwartz (the composer of WICKED and GODSPELL), PIPPIN has been lovingly crafted to become Broadway’s high-flying, death-defying musical. This unforgettable new production is the winner of four Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival and was hailed as “Astonishing. A PIPPIN for the 21st century. Dazzling and awe-inspiring.” by Ben Brantley of The New York Times.

It is unlike anything Australia has seen on stage and now Sydney audiences can see PIPPIN!

PIPPIN tells the story of a young man at a crossroads in his life. Does he follow in the footsteps of his father, one of the most powerful men in the land? Or does he strike out on his own, to find his own ‘corner of the sky?’ PIPPIN is a play within a play. The story is told by a travelling troupe of actors and acrobats (called ‘Players’), directed by the mysterious Leading Player. Like a vaudeville act, the Players both act out the roles of the story and speak directly to the audience.

This award-winning production features many Broadway standards including “Corner of the Sky”, “Magic To Do”, “Glory”, “No Time At All”, “Morning Glow” and “Love Song”.

Join us… for a magical, unforgettable new PIPPIN.
