"Director Rebecca Wahls takes the coming-of-age tale of Pippin and foregoes entirely the cobbled together circus nature that often accompanies the narrative, opting instead for edgy modernity geared toward the millennial focus. This progressive temporal shift draws today’s audience into the story, giving the story a present-day verve to its existence, honing in on the core of the narrative rather than falling victim to the trappings of the spectacle that often accompanies this show. Wahls' vision for how the 21st century youth— like this present day Pippin— connects to the world is spot-on."

"Yes, there is magic done at Monumental Theatre’s nifty production of Pippin. I am not overstating my utter enjoyment of this production. It is spunky, buoyant, and engaging from the moment the first notes of “Magic to Do” are played....Director Rebecca Wahls has done some fine casting of the DMV’s twelve member, under 30- years-of-age artists. They are diverse, high-spirited, animated, and talented."
