Pinocchio at Theater Row
Pinocchio, the classic fairy tale, will come to life on stage in a new dance adaptation. The show will engage the whole family through puppetry, narration, and original music.

Adapted for young audiences by Barbara Zinn Krieger (Artistic Director and Founder of NYCCT) and directed and choreographed by Stephanie Klemons (Broadway’s Hamilton, If/Then, Bring It On & Director/Choreographer In The Heights at the Kennedy Center), Pinocchio centers on the beloved puppet and their journey to become a real kid. With the help of Lady Blue, a wise cricket, and you, Pinocchio will learn to make good decisions and become a real kid.

Director and Choreographer Stephanie Klemons says, “Revisiting classics like Pinocchio allows us to bring theater that really connects multiple generations. Each person in the audience has a relationship with the story. Creating a new, mostly danced version is an exciting opportunity for us to lean into our physical communication which is children’s first language and bring this well-known classic to life in a brand new way!”

NYCCT's Artistic Director and Founder, Barbara Zinn Krieger says, "I remember watching the movie Pinocchio with my grandsons in Italy. I was inspired by the power of visual storytelling transcending language barriers and sought to reimagine Pinocchio, focusing on its visual narrative to eloquently convey the timeless story. In this adaptation, actions speak volumes, narrating the tale with profound resonance."

Pinocchio will play at Theatre Row, a program of Building for the Arts, NY, from March 25th - April 14th. Tickets begin at $42.50. A limited amount of pay what you choose tickets are available for each performance. The show runs approximately 50 minutes and is best for ages 4-8, but fun for the whole family.
