DistantDrumming - I couldn't agree more. I've affectionately always called the show "Are You My Mother: The Musical" as Pippin wanders rather aimlessly looking for something to do with his life - something that gets boring (on its own terms) very early on. But the theatricality in the staging, the irreverence in the storytelling, the fun in breaking the 4th wall, etc - that's what makes the show worthwhile and fun for me.

...the 1980s production with Ben Vereen and Cheets...

Cheets? Is this some nickname I'm not aware of, lol?
