Pippin tends to polarize music theatre lovers. I’m an unashamed fan.
Miranda Musical Society’s production, which serves the Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked) 70s soft rock musical very well, should ensure some new fans.
Reveling in the sultry, grotesque vaudeville carnival theatricality of Gavin Leahy’s interpretation, the well-balanced ensemble create delightful individualities, blending organically into a quirky unity. It’s a splendid production.
