A.R.T. casts new production of ‘Pippin’


The American Repertory Theater announced Wednesday the cast of its production of “Pippin.” The show, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, book by Roger O. Hirson, and direction by ART artistic director Diane Paulus, begins previews Dec. 5. Playing Pippin will be British-born actor Matthew James Thomas, who made his Broadway debut as the lead in “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark.” The cast also includes Charlotte d’Amboise, who received Tony nominations for her roles in “A Chorus Line” and “Jerome Robbins’ Broadway,” as well as Erik Altemus, Andrew Cekala, Rachel Bay Jones, Terrence Mann, Andrea Martin, and Patina Miller. The original production of “Pippin” — about a royal heir who’s spurred on by a mysterious group of performers to take a death-defying journey to find his “corner of the sky” — was directed by Bob Fosse in 1972 and won nine Tony Awards.
