Paulus serves as artistic director of A.R.T., where she also premiered a revised production of The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess prior to its Broadway transfer. Her collaborator on Pippin will be choreographer Gypsy Snider of the Montreal-based circus company Les 7 doigts de la main (7 Fingers).

Snider is also the co-director/choreographer of the Off-Broadway cirque spectacle Traces.

Tony Award-winning director-choreogerapher Bob Fosse put his indelible mark on the original 1972 Broadway production of Pippin, which ran for over 1,900 performances.

Pippin has a score by Academy Award winner and Tony nominee Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, "The Prince of Egypt") and a book by Tony nominee Roger O. Hirson.

Dates of production and casting will be announced at a later date.

Pippin features such songs as "Corner of the Sky," "Magic To Do," "With You," "Glory," "No Time at All," Morning Glow" and "Love Song."
