Pippi Longstocking, the high-spirited redhead who has inspired generations around the world, is now making her Off-Broadway debut in a musical adventure for audiences of all ages.
Nine-year old Pippi Longstocking is every child's dream of freedom and power. The daughter of a pirate sailing the South Seas, Pippi lives in Villa Villekulla with her horse and pet monkey. In the house next-door, live Tommy and Annika and since Pippi moved in, life has become a lot more fun. With her eccentric behavior, supernatural strength and witty personality, Pippi is the world’s most popular troublemaker!
Award-winning Swedish author Astrid Lindgren first wrote the story of Pippi Longstocking for her seven-year old daughter, Karin. It was Karin who created Pippi’s original Swedish name, Pippi Långstrump. Lindgren’s books have been translated into 76 different languages and have sold millions of copies throughout the world. Published in 1945, Pippi Longstocking has remained her most loved work.
Pippi Longstocking was adapted for the stage by Thomas W. Olson, with music and lyrics by Roberta Carlson. Directed by Laura Luc with musical direction by Sinai Tabak, the creative team includes scenic designer Robert Lavagno and costume design by Lucy Luc. The cast features over thirty performers, including Julianna Rigoglioso (The Sound of Music) as Pippi Longstocking, Jeremiah Burch (Beauty & the Beast) as Tommy, Rachel Weintraub as Annika, Annette Winter (The Prince of Grand Street) as Mrs. Prysselius and Drew Davidson (Hairspray) as Captain Longstocking.
Performances of Pippi Longstocking are April 20 @ 7:30pm, April 21 @ 2pm & 7:30pm, and April 22 @ 2pm at The Theatre at Saint Peters in New York City. www.PippiNYC.com
