A Quick "Pippin" Update - The Run of the Show Is Close to Being Sold Out - Act Now

I have just been informed that the entire run of "Pippin" at the American Repertory Theater is selling out fast.  If you want to take advantage of the remaining preview performances this month, or the month of January regular performances, I recommend you act soon so you don't get frozen out.  This is a production people will be talking about for a long while.

I had the rare opportunity yesterday to have a conversation with composer Stephen Schwartz, the composer and lyricist for "Pippin," as well as "Godspell," "Children of Eden," "Wicked" and other shows.  He was in Cambridge to collaborate on last-minute changes and tweaks for this new 40th anniversary production of Pippin.  He is currently working on a new musical based on the life of Harry Houdini.



P.S.  Here is a trick for trying get reasonably priced tickets.  There are "obstructed view" seat in Row A, the front of the main orchestra section - about 10 rows from the stage.  The obstructions are fleeting and minimal - a juggler standing in front of you for a few seconds, etc.  These seats are priced at $50.00 versus the $80-95 for surrounding seats.  Try  to get those seats if you can.
