Secretly I’ve always been a fan of acrobatics. To see this combined with my big hobby musical is a very special experience. Pippin is a unique show, unlike any other musical, a fact some members of the cast agreed to during our conversation after the show. The dancing, stunts and acrobatics are mindblowing, the cast members show such a control over their body!
The clownesk way the story is told, does not diminish the more serious message underneath, but it does make it a true spektakle to watch. De cast members are dressed in glamorous costumes, all except Pippin, who wears a more modest outfit, wich suits his character.
The continuous switch in interaction between the members of the cast and the audience, provide the play an extra dimension. For instance when the Leading Player distances herself from her character to point out some flaws in the acting of a colleague. Or when all of a sudden the audience is spoken to and invited to sing along. Another example is when the Leading Player, the storyteller, also talks to Pippin in person, the one she is actually telling the story about.
The singing was of good quality, there’s a lot of talent present in the cast. It was nice tot talk to some of the big stars from the show. While we enjoyed the magic of the show, the cast members themselves enjoyed participating in that same show just as much. And, so they told us, to be able to do so in a city like Amsterdam, makes it even more magical for them.
