Everyone is familiar with the popular character of Pinocchio, originally created in 1880 by Italy’s Carlo Collodi as a weekly magazine serial, The Adventures of Pinocchio. This heartwarming story about a young boy made of wood who finds mischief and many bumps along his way to becoming a real boy has been enjoyed by millions throughout the decades, whether by the movies, print or on the stage.

But Simon’s passion for commedia dell’arte puts a new twist on an old story. Commedia dell'arte ("Comedy of Art") means unwritten or improvised drama and was a popular form of improvisational theatre that began in 15th century Renaissance Italy. Theatre Arlington’s performers will be adorned with many beautiful and imaginative masks, a staple of this type of theater.

Simon’s version of this beloved tale is one of his most successful productions and audience members, young and old alike, will have a blast with the slapstick antics and silly banter. This unique form of storytelling breathes new life and energy into the charming story of the love of between father and son.
