Theatre Thursday :: my thoughts on Pippin in haiku

8 Oct

(I actually saw this a couple of weekends ago and forgot to write about it.  Probably because I left disturbed.)

Cirque de Soleil-like
Fancy choreography,
Chita Rivera,

A talented cast,
None of this made up for the
Creepy elements.

Rape jokes, incest, and
Figments of the mind saying
“You should kill yourself”

Maybe it made more
Sense or shock or cultural
Message back when.  BUT.

–your fangirl heroine.
