The revived Broadway musical "Pippin" will head out on a national tour in September with a cast that includes Sasha Allen, a finalist on NBC's "The Voice," in the role of Leading Player. Adding a cool bit of history to the production will be Tony Award-winning actor John Rubinstein as Charles. Rubinstein created the title role of the musical on Broadway in 1972. That role will be played on tour by Kyle Selig, a veteran of the "Book of Mormon" tour. The tour launches in Denver and will reach Baltimore's Hippodrome in June 2015.

The 2014-2015 lineup presented by Broadway Across America at the Hippodrome does not boast blockbusters on the order of this season's "The Book of Mormon. " But it will offer several recent Tony Award winners, a couple of dirty dancers and a famous foursome: Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred (or approximations thereof). "It's hard to beat a season with 'Mormon' and 'War Horse,' " said Jeff Daniel, president of the Hippodrome at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. "But I think we've got a strong season with all sorts of things in it. To say there's something for everyone is an understatement.

For a musical about a historical figure, Pippin has very little to do with history. What composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz did was to use the story of Pippin, son of medieval Europe's great emperor Charlemagne, as a means of exploring questions more redolent of our modern search for meaning. In this 30-year-old Broadway show, now in production at Colonial Players of Annapolis, Pippin (called Pepin in linguistically correct textbooks) is an addlebrained youth out to find transcendent meaning in his life.

"Magic To Do" is the best-known song from the 1972 musical "Pippin," and director/choreographer Todd Pearthree has definitely proved he can work magic in the two seasons his Musical Theatre Machine has been in residence at the Spotlighters Theatre.In his sparkling production of "Pippin" at the tiny downtown theater, Pearthree mines panache out of a mediocre show. Largely a period piece, "Pippin" has a book by Roger O. Hirson about an 8th-century prince who undergoes a 1970s-style zTC identity crisis.

From its start, Infinity Theatre Company has had a mission to bring New York City productions to Anne Arundel County. It was a goal fulfilled in the troupe's first full season in 2011 with the show "My Way," which played in Annapolis after previewing in Manhattan two months before. Now Infinity has come full circle, with the troupe serving as a co-producer of a Tony-nominated Broadway revival of "Pippin," and also with efforts underway to bring last season's Annapolis hit, "Dames at Sea," to Broadway by spring 2014.

Although no longer revolutionary, Stephen Schwartz's dark 1972 episodic musical "Pippin" continues to surprise and intrigue. In a production by 2nd Star in Bowie, the spirit of the show's director/choreographer Bob Fosse again seduces us, the dancers' sharp moves synchronized to Schwartz's catchy folk-pop-rock score. "Pippin" is the story of a naïve young prince's search for meaning and fulfillment in life. Pippin's racy grandmother encourages him to savor a series of fleshly encounters, and the amoral Leading Player guides him to battlefield competitions, sensual pleasures and, ultimately, patricide — as Pippin briefly becomes king by killing his father, Charlemagne.

But it seems that he would have been just as well cut out for an entirely different career — motivational speaker. "A lot of my friends are not here, but I'm still here," Vereen said by phone from Los Angeles, the words coming in rapid-fire fashion. "I lost a daughter. I got hit by a car and was pronounced dead.
