The musical is led by a Leading Player which tells the story of Pippin, a young prince on his search for meaning and significance. The protagonist, Pippin, and his father, Charlemagne, are characters derived from two real-life individuals of the early Middle Ages, though the plot is fictional and presents no historical accuracy regarding either.
The cast in the filmed production includes Ben Vereen as Leading Player, William Katt as Pippin, Chita Rivera as Fastrada, Leslie Denniston as Catherine, and Benjamin Rayson as Charlemagne.
