There’s magic to do on Broadway — Pippin is coming back.
Producers of the Diane Paulus-led revival that is playing at the American Repertory Theater outside Boston said late Thursday that Pippin will transfer to the Music Box Theatre this spring.
Performances begin March 23 with an official opening on April 25.
A whimsical coming-of-age story about the son of the first Holy Roman Emperor, Pippin boasts pop-rock music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Roger O. Hirson. Schwartzs other hits include Wicked and Godspell.
Pippin opened in 1972 under the direction of Bob Fosse and ran for five years, winning five Tonys. It became a favourite with schools, summer stocks and community theatres across the country.
