Here is how the New York Times reported the news today.
I had a conversation last evening during Opening Night intermission with composer Stephen Schwartz, who had made the trip from his home in Connecticut to be present for the special event. He took time off from working on his latest project, a new musical based on the life of Harry Houdini. I asked him about moving "Pippin" 'to Broadway, and if the show would be recast or would use the actors currently performing in Cambridge. He indicated that it was the plan to keep the cast essentially in place as much as is possible as the show moves from Cambridge to Broadway. I responded by saying: "Good, because in my opinion, there are no weak links in this cast." He laughed and made the comment: "Please get yourself hired by the New York Times so you can repeat those words in their pages!"
Before the show makes its move to New York, it will continue in production in Cambridge through January 20. The run of the show here is almost completely sold out. I just came from the box office, where people were lined up to purchase tickets as the phones in the office rang off the hook. If you want to see the show before it leaves town, act now.
