PIPPIN cemented Stephen Schwartz as a major force in musical theatre. It premiered at the Imperial Theatre on October 23, 1972 and ran for nearly 2000 performances on Broadway. Directed and choreographed by Bob Fosse, PIPPIN started the careers of Ben Vereen (the Leading Player), Jill Clayburgh (Catherine), John Rubinstein (Pippin), Leland Palmer and Ann Reinking. During the original run, Irene Ryan (Granny on The Beverly Hillbillies) collapsed and died after performing the big showstopper, "No Time At All." PIPPIN opened in the West End at Her Majesty's Theatre on October 30, 1973 and ran for 85 performances. Bob Fosse again was director and choreographer.
