It’s 45 years since I saw Pippin in the West End, and while the themes are certainly still current, the style and the devices can feel a little outdated. Chris Adams’ compelling production, especially at the end, cuts through the tricks and the whimsy to achieve a genuinely moving piece of drama.

If ever a show was crying out for a large scale return to the West End, then Pippin is the one and, my advice is to all the members of Sedos, give up the day jobs and take it there.

For my money the show is good enough to transfer West, half a mile up the road. Certainly, many of the cast could have a second string to their bows in the commercial theatre any time they wanted.

Pippin is a triumph… highly recommended.

It was not good. It was very good... Go to the Bridewell and give some support to these guys. They deserve it!

The whole production is more polished and entertaining than many professional shows… In the hands of Sedos, Pippin is a gem of a musical.
