Throughout Europe, Josef Krofta and his Theater Drak have garnered an unparalleled reputation for innovations in the centuries-old Czech puppetry tradition. In this U.S. premiere, Drak presents a dark and powerful interpretation of Collodišs childrenšs classic about the master woodcarver Geppetto and his puppet-boy. With its live and taped music and complex theatrical techniques, this Pinokio is gloriously original. Performed in English. For adults and kids ages 10 and up.
