Directed by James Vasquez, the limited engagement continues through Oct. 14.
The musical stars Louis Pardo (Jesus Christ Superstar national tour) in the title role with Courtney Corey (Rent national tour) as the Leading Player, Megan Carmitchel (San Diego Rep's Tommy) as Catherine, Andy Collins (Diversionary's The Rocky Horror Show) as King Charles, Tony Houck (Diversionary's Next Fall) as Lewis, Luke Jacobs (All Shook Up national tour) as Fastrada, Wendy Maples (Diversionary's Fair Use) as Berthe and Hunter Schwarz (Diversionary Cabaret's Altar Boyz) as Theo.
Here's how Diversionary describes the musical, which features a book by Roger O. Hirson: "On his journey Pippin samples the glories of the battlefield, the wisdom of a grandmother, the intrigues of political power, the pleasures of the flesh and simple farm life – trying to find where he fits in. Join us for a magical, musical fairy tale of extraordinary discovery."
The Diversionary Theatre is located at 4545 Park Boulevard #101 in San Diego, CA. For more information and tickets, visit Diversionary.org.
