Where: New Victory Theater, 42nd St, Manhattan, NYC
Details: Presented by Windmill Theatre / State Theatre Company of South Australia from Adelaide, Australia.

Tenderly tooled by the lonely Gepetto, Pinocchio takes a walk on the wild side when the need to belong gives way to temptations of fun, fame and the dream of becoming a real boy. Last seen at the Sydney Opera House, this "really brilliant musical for kids" (Time Out Sydney) is a visually stunning, must-see production.
