The Voice season six champ Josh Kaufman, possessing the slick-backed vocals and charm for days, has been tapped for the title role in the Tony Award-winning Broadway music Pippin. His run, following Kyle Dean Massey‘s current take at the role, will begin Nov. 4 and continue into the new year, wrapping Jan. 4. The show is currently playing at the Music Box Theatre.
Written by Roger O. Hirson and Stephen Schwartz, the current installment is being directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus, with choreography by Tony Award nominee Chet Walker and circus creation by Gypsy Snider (of Les 7 doigts de la main out of Montreal).
