ARTS Pick: Pippin

Publicity photo Publicity photo

Told by a charismatic troupe of actors, Pippin is the story of a prince who desperately wants to impress his father, King Charles. The Leading Player convinces Pippin to betray the King instead, and his life goes hopelessly awry. Pippin dreams of love, family and a happy ending—but Leading Player anticipates a more exciting finale. Stephen Schwartz’s toe-tapping music is brought to life in this lively rendition of the dark fairy tale.

Through July 30. $15-20, times vary. Live Arts, 123 Water St. E. 977-4177.
