Pippin "No Time at All" sing-along


“Are there any Mormons out here? Literally, you sound like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.” That was Pippin star Andrea Martin to the 500-odd theater superfans who turned out at the New York Society for Ethical Culture on Tuesday afternoon to belt their hearts out. In a once-in-a-blue-moon move, members of the public (several hundred TONY readers among them) were given the chance to sing on the Broadway-revival cast recording for Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records of Stephen Schwartz’s beloved musical, adding their voices to those of the cast on the anthemic “No Time at All.”

The event—hosted by TONY's own Adam Feldman—was led by musical director Charlie Alterman, musical supervisor Nadia DiGiallonardo and Schwartz himself. Tony Award nominee Martin, who sings the verse of the song, was also on hand to lead the attendees into the chorus—and generally make them swoon. Check out our shots of the day, plus video of the cobbled-together choir in action. (They sound pretty fantastic, no?)

Thank you for including the fans!!!! It was so much fun. I have been listening to the OCR for years. Now I have an excuse to listen for many more years. Andrea Martin, Stephen Schwartz and the rest of the production team were incredible. I will remember this for the rest of my life. A friend of mine pointed out, "Chris, now you are part of PIPPIN forever".

Thank you for giving all these wonderful fans the experience of a lifetime! I've loved the music of Pippin since the 70's and am thrilled that my daughter had the chance to be a part of it. I can't wait to hear the entire recording.
