The long-absent musical “Pippin” gets its San Diego run at the Civic Theatre through Sunday, August 30.
The coming-of-age production follows the title’s namesake as he traverses through life trying to find its meaning. The character Pippin is a new soul, who is only beginning to gather pieces from his adventures to assemble a complete picture of who he is and who he wants to be.
This might also be said for the actor who is playing “Pippin.”
Brian Flores, in his professional theater debut, graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.F.A. in musical theater this past May.
