“When [Antigone] casts those burning eyes into the audience and proclaims that ‘What a person can do, a person ought to do,’ it makes you want to run out and paint a picket sign for whatever you happen to believe in.”

PINNOCHIO

 

“Banks’s cleverly realized version of Pinocchio presents a tale anchored in stage magic so immediate and vital it may make you forget about the [Disney] version.”

StarTribune

 

 

 

“Pinocchio is the clutch-poppingest, lustiest, take-it-to-10and-let-her-rippest most insanely creative show to come down ye olde pike in a long time.”

 

How Was The Show?

HUCK FINN

 

“This version of the story captures Twain’s cadence and complexity, and it’s tinged with a sense of awe for the Mississippi River, a character that never says a word but still speaks volumes.”

St. Paul Pioneer Press

 

 

"Greg Banks’ innovative interpretation of this American tale creates a muscular and exciting theater experience.”
