MAPA teens’ ‘Pippin’ is musically strong and dancing is extraordinary

STAGE REVIEW

You could describe "Pippin" as an underappreciated Broadway classic. Some find it too anticlimactic, some suggest it is dated, and others claim it is a little too gimmicky. The one thing all seem to agree on is that the music is phenomenal, and the Fosse choreography is some of his finest work. If you're going to take on the very '70s "Pippin," nailing song and dance is essential. This MAPA production has a few chinks in the armor, but musically it is very strong for an all-youth cast and the dancing is extraordinary.
