Summary
  • Using the medieval legend of Charlemange's son, Pippin is a parable about a young man's search for meaning and truth. With the show's masterful master of ceremonies, Ben Vereen, jumping the time barrier from the 1980s to the Middle Ages and back again, while the music and costumes go through similar time-and-space warps, young Pippin embarks on a odyssey to discover whether there really is "something worthwhile I can do with my life."
  • Using the medieval legend of Charlemagne's son, Pippin, heir apparent to the Holy Roman Empire, this musical pageant is a parable about a young man's search for meaning and truth
