PIPPI LONGSTOCKING – December 8-11, 2011 at the Studio 3 Artspace Theater
Pippi is the high spirited, warm hearted incarnation of every child’s dream of freedom and power. Dressed in strange clothes and living with her horse and pet monkey, she possesses supernatural strength and untold wealth. And now the rollicking adventures that put her at odds with the demands of life in a small town fill an effervescent family musical written by Denmark’s celebrated composer/lyricist/recording artist. When Pippi is not dancing with burglars who are trying to steal the gold coins given to her by her father (a pirate who is revered as a king by a tribe of South Sea island cannibals), she is at the circus fighting the strongest man in the world or playing tag with policemen. This uproariously funny musical starring the world’s most popular enfant terrible has played to sold out audiences the world over.
