"Pippin" is coming to the Harbor City Stage this week! We had Erin Miller and Matthew Wagner on the show to give us the inside scoop on what to expect from this vibrant musical.
Matthew Wagner, as the Leading Player, brings to the role his experience as a dancer in national musical tours and shows in New York City, and now as a dance instructor at Madill Performing Arts Center.
Erin Miller, a recent graduate of UMD with his BFA in musical theater, plays the title role. He will be leaving Duluth after this production to take a role in the Bloomington Civic Theater's production of "Next to Normal."
"Pippin" is a fanciful take on the life and times of medieval King Charlemagne's reign and his son Pippin's search for meaning in his life. Filled with modern references and the tone and style of such shows as "Hair," "Godspell," and "Spamalot," "Pippin" explodes with color and inventive costuming.
Bob Fosse-style dance numbers are staged by award winning choreographer Jennifer Madill Hagen, who has also choreographed Lundeen Production's "Cabaret" and "Jekyll and Hyde."
Pippin will run for 12 performances, July 9-26 at the Harbor City International Theater in downtown Duluth.
Shows start at 7:30 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Sundays
Tickets are $25
