TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Broadway show "Pippin" has been around for 40 years and this week, it's taking over ASU Gammage Memorial Auditorium.

"The man who is the mastermind behind this musical really was waiting for the first time for a creative staff of geniuses to put things together to recreate his work," Mark Burell, choreographer, said.

The show incorporates a lot of acrobatics and Bob Fosse style choreography.

"It's been such a dream come true. I'm a long time Fosse dancer and so to get to do this in a recreated world has been fun," Burell said.

The show will run from Dec. 2 to Dec. 7.
