High-flying acrobatics, unbelievable balancing feats, catchy song and dance routines, and even some fire consumes the stage at a magical performance of Pippen! And Michelle and I were in the front row of the theater to witness it all!
A little over a year ago, to kick off my bachelorette weekend, Michelle arrived in NYC a little early and we went to see Pippen! It has now begun a tour across the US so it may be showing near you if you have any interest in a spectacular show! I wasn't 100% on board with the overall message of the show, but it was one of the most entertaining I've seen. I loved that the audience felt a part of the show, too. There were several times we participated and characters spoke directly to the audience at various moments.
My favorite character was Bethe, Pippen's exiled grandmother. Older people have wisdom and insight on life that allows them to tell it like it is...almost always. The best song of the show was Bethe's No Time At All. Here the chorus:
Oh, it's time to start livin'
Time to take a little from this world we're given
Time to take time, 'cause spring will turn to fall
In just no time at all...
Check out the tour list if you want to spend a couple hours being well entertained! The talent and athletic feats that occurred throughout Pippen were nothing short of amazing!
