Arts preview: ‘Pippin’ at Short North Stage

Jim Fischer
Columbus Alive

In what might be the perfect marriage of show and company, Short North Stage offers the 1972 musical “Pippin” through April 14. Broadway's transformation that began in the 1960s and took hold in the '70s resulted in a period of inventive, offbeat and magical shows, with Stephen Schwartz's “Pippin” a leading light. Short North Stage — inventive, offbeat and magical in its own right — presents this adaptation of the show's 2013 revival, featuring Amber Knicole as Leading Player and Corbin Payne as Pippin.

Thursdays-Sundays, through April 14
