Diane Paulus directs magical ‘Pippin’ at ART
This story is from BostonGlobe.com, the only place for complete digital access to the Globe.
“Pippin” has two endings: This is the newer, and better, one, in which, as Pippin, Catherine, and Theo slip offstage to resume their ordinary life, Theo, unable to resist the lure of stardom, sneaks back and is taken in hand by the Leading Player and the rest of the troupe. You can’t blame him: anyone who’s seen this production knows how magical the theater can be.
