Needless to say, serious fans of nostalgic music (also sung by the likes of Michael Bubl~, Harry Connick, Jr. and Tony Bennett) who score Johnny Mathis tickets are always in for a "Wonderful! Wonder- fulI" time.

BOSTON OPERA HOUSE 539 Washington St., Boston, MA 617-259-3400 PIPPIN -- February 2-14, 2016. A young prince sets out on a journey to find the ultimate meaning of life in the vaudevillian spectacular of Pippin, from GodspeU creator Stephen Schwartz.

With elements of surrealism and naughtiness, there is a moving core to this quest for fulfil- ment, told through a medieval fable that still connects with contemporary audiences. Revived on Broadway by Di- rector Diane Paulus (Porgy and Bess and Hair), this new incarnation of Pippin won four 2013 Tonys, and is now hitting the road for a bombastic and vivid tour of the USA!
