Young Pippin, son of Charlemagne, is on a search for truth and the purpose of life ... but he’s the only one who doesn’t realize that he’s searching for it within a play.  Surrounded - and manipulated - by neo- vaudevillian jugglers, dancers, singers, aerialists, and puppets, living in a dark techno-steampunk world, he must choose between family, war, art, god, love, and death. Pippin is an Everyman searching for the magic in the world, as if the real world weren't magic enough.
