The tale of Pippin follows the life of the son of Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, as he struggles to find meaning in his life. Lacking any true motivation, Pippin becomes a soldier for his father's army, but is upset by the killing and murders his father to stop the war. After he becomes King, he is even more lost and unsure about what he wants in life and turns away from everything, including love, before discovering that what he has been searching for has been within him all along.

The original Broadway production of Pippin combined the themes of war, sexual experimentation, political upheaval and the search for personal identity, all matters of concern in the America of the 1970s. The show was originally choreographed and directed by the inimitable Bob Fosse.
