The Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of the musical “Pippin” will close at the Music Box Theater on Jan. 4, 2015, the show’s producers announced on Monday evening.
The revamped production of the 1972 musical by Stephen Schwartz and Roger O. Hirson, about a young prince with existential doubts, was notable for updating Bob Fosse’s original direction and choreography with acrobatics and other circus elements.
The revival had its premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., in 2012. It opened on Broadway in April 2013 to mostly positive reviews and went on to receive four Tonys, including the awards for best musical revival, best director of a musical (Diane Paulus), best actress in a musical (Patina Miller) and best featured actress in a musical (Andrea Martin).
The production recouped its full $8.5 million capitalization in December 2013, but lately its box office had been softening. Last week it grossed $377,838, or just 36 percent of its potential at the 1,000-seat Music Box Theater, down from its gross of $779,078 for the same week last year.
Josh Kaufman, a winner on the NBC reality-competition show “The Voice,” has just joined the cast in the title role. When it closes, “Pippin” will have played 709 performances and 37 previews.
A risk of blending circus and choreography is overwhelming the senses of the audience. Ms. Paulus did want moments, like the reveal, of “a visceral explosion where you can’t possibly take it all in,” but she also sought instances of singular virtuosity — star turns, if you will, even by performers who don’t have major parts. Ms. Snider created one such moment with the acrobat Philip Rosenberg. The two had worked together on the Off Broadway show “Traces” by their Montreal troupe 7 Fingers (Les 7 Doigts de la Main). Ms. Snider knew he could walk on his hands and noticed that the “Pippin” set included staircases for the Act I finale. She proposed moving one to center stage during “Magic to Do” and having him walk upside down. Mr. Rosenberg said he took a couple of spills in rehearsal, but he hasn’t had one in performance.
