"morning glow" is an awesome song from a fantastic musical.
just last year we wrapped up a full production of Pippin; best show I've ever worked!

Isn't it, though? :D

I love both the song and the show. I recently ran sound and designed/painted masks for all of the players in the youth conservatory's production of it at my school.

What was the ending in your production?

essentially we cleared the stage of all chorus/players and kept the leading player out with pippin & family, alone on stage with a bare bulb and no other lighting/set. we pulled our back psych and left our wood storage blank.
the play ended as the leading player left them alone, pippin said a few words, and then he turned off the bare bulb.
cue encore lighting, and boom!

The production I worked added a twist to that ending. Although we had a spot left on Pippin and the family after the all of the players left, instead of a bare bulb. I like the bulb better, though.

But what we did was, when the family left...the little boy stopped at the end of the stage, just before exiting, and looked over at the spot of light. Then he ran into it and started to sing, "rivers belong where they can ramble, eagles belong where they can fly..." and a red light illuminated him from the pit as blue light outlined all of the players, who came stalking back in with a kind of stylized "evil-looking" walk up to the end of that verse at "...got to find my corner of the sky." Then the lead player extended her (we had a female, an alto as the lead player) hand to him, and he set his hand in hers, then the BOOM, and blackout.


I wonder what other endings people've made for it. I heard there's a number of them that've circulated around theatres...
