Critical Acclaim

The Adventures of Pinocchio reels in kids and keeps them on the edge of their seats”

“The Pinocchio story is bound to appeal to adults as much as to children. And this certainly is the case with “The Adventures of Pinocchio,” the musical by Neil Bartram (music and lyrics) and Brian Hill (book), now in a splendidly designed, admirably sophisticated Chicago Shakespeare Theater production.”

“...the terrific cast enlivens the material. Newcomer Adams makes an appealing hero, and the rest of the ensemble proves adept at engaging young audience members. And the show is handsomely designed, particularly Meredith Miller’s enchanting puppets.”

“       ... 70 sparkling minutes of magic on stage.”

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED … Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s productions never disappoint. Here, the staging is creative and delightful, with innovative sets, fully fleshed characters, smooth interweaving of puppets and actors, and colorful costuming … CST’s family productions are the best theater buy for the money in Chicago, providing an introduction for young and a renewed appreciation of drama for adult audiences.”

“Cool, affordable fun for the whole family.”
