  14. The award-winning musical Pippin returns to the Bridewell Theatre from 9-19 May in a new production staged by Sedos, the City of London’s premier amateur theatre company. Ambitious young man Pippin is ready to change the world. But things are never that simple. Setting out to make his mark, Pippin dabbles with the horrors of war, the lure of sex and the sordid world of politics, failing at every turn. But there is someone Pippin can rely on. Someone he can trust. Someone who can help Pippin be remembered forever… in one final, extraordinary blaze of glory. With its infectious and unforgettable score from four-time Grammy and three-time Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden) and its iconic choreography by Bob Fosse, Pippin has delighted audiences across the world since the original production in 1973. The most recent Broadway revival swept the New York awards circuit, including winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. The Sedos team are delighted to bring Pippin back to the Bridewell, a theatre that holds a special place in the history of the show. The now widely used “Theo ending” was first staged at the Bridewell exactly 20 years ago. “It has been a pleasure exploring this deliciously dark show with such an incredibly dedicated and talented company, who have managed to put a new spin on such a well-loved story,” said Chris Adams, director of Sedos’ production of Pippin. “As well as being packed with memorable, fun show-tunes, Pippin has a really intriguing darker edge, and we've taken inspiration from contemporary stories like Black Mirror and The Handmaid's Tale in our design. Our choreography combines modern twists with nods to the original routines created by Bob Fosse. “I think audiences will be surprised by the show and will enjoy coming up with their own ideas about what it all means. Despite being developed in the 1970s, it really does feel bang up to date.” Pippin Book by Roger O.Hirson Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz Box office: sedos.co.uk 9-19 May 7.30pm, plus Saturday matinees at 2.30pm Bridewell Theatre, Bride Lane, London, EC4Y 8EQ Tickets: £14.50-21 CAST LEADING PLAYER | Corin Miller PIPPIN | Joe Thompson-Oubari CHARLEMAGNE | Kris Webb LEWIS | Paul Nicholas Dyke FASTRADA | Vicky Terry BERTHE | Annie Houseago CATHERINE | Charlie Welch PLAYERS Siobhan Aarons Toby Churchley Will Emery Tim Garrad Eloise Horton Clarissa Lonsdale Hannah Parker Smith Mark Siddall Becky Sweeney Vaughan Watts (dance captain) Sean Westwood CREATIVE TEAM DIRECTOR | Chris Adams MUSICAL DIRECTOR | Sophie Wright CHOREOGRAPHER | Paul Brookland-Williams ASSISTANT MUSICAL DIRECTOR | Ed Curry CO-PRODUCERS | Lizzie Drapper and Pippa Kyle LIGHTING DESIGNER | Oliver Levett SET | Steven King SOUND DESIGNER | Adrian Jeakins COSTUMES | Clare Harding TECHNICAL STAGE MANAGER | Giles Burden IMAGE AND FLYER DESIGN | Rebecca Pitt COMMITTEE LIAISON AND COMPANY STAGE MANAGER | Rebecca Chisholm Photo caption: Leading Player (Corin Miller) at the forefront of the company Photo credit: Michael Smith/Sedos View full news article
