Originally debuting on Broadway in 1972, the Tony Award-winning pop musical follows Pippin, the heir to the throne of King Charlemagne, as he strives to find a place to belong by experimenting with art, war, religion, power, love and revolution. Led by guest director Shirley Jo Finney, Dartmouth students give the play a surrealist twist as Pippin grapples with contemporary questions and doubts to ultimately find his truth.
