Well, I have them and I don't remember paying for them, so ... oops.  I may be a wanted criminal in the West End.

Just back from New York myself and I couldn't agree more about Pippin. I was really annoyed that I wasted my one free Sunday afternoon theatre slot on that. The acrobatics were good (although not as good as Cirque du Soleil) and the singing fine, with Patina Miller a particular standout, but the book was so dire I just felt like I was completely wasting my time. It reminded me of the Fantasticks, which I think is similarly faux-sentimental and simple. It may have worked in the 70s, but I thought it was incredibly dated and silly in today's context.
