7/30: Pippin at Cain Park

Posted By on Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 12:05 PM

Composer Stephen Schwartz was just a couple of years out of college and already had one Off-Broadway hit (Godspell) when Pippin premiered in 1972. The quasi-historical musical sets the life of Pippin the Hunchback to a score of ’70s-style pop music. It’s been a favorite of musical theaters and high schools ever since. But Cain Park’s big summer production should be better than that, since Victoria Bussert directs and Martin Cespedes choreographs. It opens at 7 tonight, with performances through August 23 at Cain Park’s Alma Theatre (14591 Superior Rd., Cleveland Hts., 216.371.3000). Tickets: $15-$24. — Michael Gill
