★★★½☆ - Satisfying
The Nevada Conservatory Theatre (NCT) presents a most satisfying 3½ Star production of PIPPIN through May 6th in UNLV’s Judy Bayley Theatre.
This wondrous visual treat is set in the circus-like court of the 8th Century Holy Roman Emperor. At the start, two Leading Players introduce the audience to their world, a theatrical caravan. The large ensemble cast joins the Leading Players in welcoming the audience with magic tricks, dance and other elements of spectacle, preparing the audience for the story that they are about to tell ("Magic to Do").
