Pinocchio - 1973 - Off-Broadway

Based on the story by C. Collodi

Looking down at his newly crafted puppet, kindly old Geppetto makes one wish, that Pinocchio could be a real boy. The Blue Fairy appears that night and brings Pinocchio to life, telling him that if he learns to be honest, brave and unselfish, he will become a real boy. And then a fantastic, musical adventure begins, with a marionette show, a sly fox, and boys turning into donkeys. Join Pinocchio as he tries to get out of trouble and learn what it takes to be a real boy.

This Spotlight focuses on Ronnie Marmo, an actor, director, producer, playwright, and Artistic Director of Theatre 68 who has been touring the country with his dynamic solo show I'm Not A Comedian...I'm Lenny Bruce.
