With committed standout performances all around—particularly Bob Turton as a Pulcinella that feels lifted directly from Orwell's 1984 and Pierre Adeli as a riotously inappropriate Pantalone—the ensemble grabs this epic modern Commedia by its leotard-stretched balls, paying wonderful homage to Tim Robbins' amazing script, as well as his gloriously slick staging, clever score, and precision choreography. And along the way, Robbins' warning about the precarious state of our own cherished freedom, right at this very moment, is an urgent cry for us all to get off our complacent asses and join to stop the madness being foisted on the planet all around us.
