As kids we all loved bedtime stories didn’t we? Very memorably, the adventures of Pinocchio was just one of our favourites.
Well, for those who have hazy memories, the story is of a boy Pinocchio, made out of wood by a toy maker named Geppetto. In one of the stories, Geppetto makes a puppet and wishes it to be a real boy. The Blue Fairy also called as wish fairy fulfils his wish and turns the wooden boy into a real boy, Pinocchio. But Pinocchio's heart will still remain of wood, till he proves himself to be an honest, kind and a good boy; and if he disobeys or tells a lie then his nose will grow and grow until he realizes his mistake. As Pinocchio steps out of his house he is misguided and manipulated by shrewd and cunning people and thus gets into trouble facing problems of a growing nose, turning into a donkey, getting robbed and also gulped by a whale.
Now this same adorable story is coming back as a musical. As one of the many plays in Mumbai which are put up for all theatre lovers, this play is one of the most awaited for young and old alike. This play has been directed & created by one of the most sought after creative directors, Rashmi Sharma.
