Pippin the Musical by Stephen Schwartz is returning to London for the first time in five years, and opening this week. The new production of the award-winning musical is to be on stage at Southwark Theatre.
"I am so pleased that such a successful and well-received production of Pippin has finally happened in the UK, and I’m excited to be sharing it with a London audience," said Schwartz, who is better known for composing the score to Wicked, as well as Godspell, The Prince of Egypt and Pocahontas.
Pippin will be the third production from Manchester’s Hope Mill to transfer to London’s Off-West End in under a year. It will be running from February 23 to March 24.
