The creative team also includes musical director Zach Flis, choreographer William Whelton, designer Maeve Black; lighting designer Aaron J Dootson; and sound designer Chris Bogg.
Director Jonathan O’Boyle commented:
“Pippin is an extraordinary musical from the genius that is Stephen Schwartz, and it’s a real thrill to be working on this production which will premiere at Manchester’s Hope Mill Theatre. We had such a euphoric response to our production of Hair last year, that I cannot wait to bring this magical Broadway sensation to Manchester – where it receives its regional premiere.
We are delighted to be working with such a talented cast, who have individually appeared in some of the greatest musicals of our time. Rehearsals are underway and are going extremely well. We are reinventing PIPPIN for the intimate space at Hope Mill and excited to welcome audiences to share the magic of this special production.”
