Pippin's Circus Pitches a Broadway Tent

In a reimagined Pippin on Broadway, director Diane Paulus brings new and old to the coming-of-age musical: She weaves new circus elements with Bob Fosse-style choreography based on the original 1972 production. Paulus sought out Chet Walker, himself a member of the original company of the Stephen Schwartz classic, to channel the work of the master choreographer Fosse. Paulus, Walker, cirque creator Gypsy Snider and stars Patina Miller and Matthew James Thomas talk about the techniques and experience of melding the two worlds. Read the Playbill interview with Paulus at the time of the A.R.T. tryout of Pippin.
