Pinocchio, the Talking Cricket, Gepetto Christopher Piper
Performance Dates
Half life-size rod puppets, performed in the Italian “Commedia dell’arte” style, tell Carlo Collodi’s story of what it means to be “real.” Share the trials and tribulations of the little live puppet as he finds in one adventure after another that the “easy way” isn’t always the right way. Called by Smithsonian’s Discovery Theater, “one of the most exquisite productions to ever grace our theater.”
