LONGING PINOCCHIO

Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre Group and Aliens With Extraordinary Abilities proudly present

an authentic, all-Italian cast as they bring-to-life their outlandish and dark adaptation of the classic

"Pinocchio"

While mourning Geppetto The Woodcarver at his funeral reception,

we discover that every bizarre character from Collodi's world-renown fairy tale

is present - all except for his beloved puppet!

Where is Pinocchio?

Was the wooden boy ever real or just a figment of a lonely man's imagination at the twilight of his life?

Featuring Valeria lacampo, Veronica Nolte and Eric Paterniani.

Produced by Zombie Joe.

For Ages 13 and up.

SUNDAYS & TUESDAYS @ 8:30pm August 19, 21, 26 and 28, 2018

David MacDowell Blue - Night Tinted Glasses

Increasingly, the chaotic and often terrifying adventures of Pinocchio become sheathed in shadows. Appropriate. For as much as this is an Odyssey of sorts, it is also a Divine Comedy. Not only a wild, magical world of talking animals, a turquoise fairie, and meetings inside monsters make up this tale. We also watch a journey through Purgatory, Hell and maybe even a glimpse of Heaven. At one point we pretty clearly see beyond death itself.

...the performers spin the incredibly modest resources of a tiny venue, a few platforms, and a sound system into the most compelling theatrical gold... Yes, the narrative is traditional, but the general mood of eerie unease, combined with imaginative moments and gestures, belies its deceptive simplicity. - RECOMMENDED
