Event description

Description

Book by Roger O. Hirson
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Runtime: 2hrs 10mins

HRT's production of the Tony Award-Winning Musical, Pippin. The story of a young prince on his search for meaning and significance. The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne (oops! spoilers).

On the darker side, PIPPIN could quite possibly be the millennial experience. Pippin, although born privileged, struggles to find a calling that matches his ambition and expectations of what his life should be. However, his place in life will not be as well-off or grandiose as his father, the King. Prodded by the Lead Player, Pippin refuses to accept the poor and mundane life he eventually finds himself living (trapped in) as the Lead Player (social media, society) tries to convince him into one major final act.


Not a show for children under 14. Suicide has become the 2nd leading cause of non-natural death in the United States. The Harlem Repertory Theatre explores how high ambitions and pressure from society, media and social media affect the younger generation and mold their expectations of life. Expectations that are usually too ambitious that most can't meet and their reaction when things don't turn out as they envisioned. A powerful musical, with Monty Phyton-esque comedy, and to tapping music.
