    This is one of the most inventive version of Pinocchio ever.

The house-on-fire pacing will leave you breathless, the hilarious comedy will leave you laughing, and some unexpectedly touching moments will leave you loving this Pinocchio even more. Learn More

    Refreshingly antic, this irreverent version of Aesop's fable is written in the style of Italian commedia dell'arte. Using authentic staging and stock characters of commedia—the miserly Pantalone, the bragging Captain, the romantic lovers, the trickster Arlequin, plus an endearing lion—this fable becomes a colorful theatrical experience with zany comedy and the warmth of friendship.
