Pippin in the Denver Post

Posted by lgirard on April 21st 2006 to In the News

Denver Post staff writer John Wenzel talks to Director Rod Lansberry and writes about Pippin.

John says, “The colorful characters and plot may be well-worn – the original ran for 1,944 performances and won five Tony awards – but Arvada Center artistic director Rod Lansberry thinks audiences will reconnect to the themes of looking for an ultimate meaning, even if the show offers no easy answers … Pippin’s 20-person ensemble cast was open to the challenge of interpreting the stage classic, which Lansberry said made all the difference in the dance-heavy production. But balancing the strengths of the Bob Fosse-directed original with cast-led innovations was tricky.”
