PINOCCHIO: Danny Kaye and Sandy Duncan star in a wondrous new musical adaptation of this timeless children’s story. Most children and their parents are familiar with this well-known story. It was first written in 1883 by Carlo Collodi and since then has been translated into practically every language on earth. Danny Kaye stars as ‘Gepetto’, the lonely woodcarver who creates a little puppet as a son, and Sandy Duncan plays ‘Pinocchio’; the puppet that miraculously comes to life and eventually fulfills a dream – to become a real boy.
“From Ron Field’s choreography to Stan Winston’s makeup and Bill Hargate’s costumes, the production bespeaks quality…SANDY DUNCAN is a delightful Pinocchio, projecting all the qualities we want the little puppet to have…. Best of all, we have DANNY KAYE as Gepetto…. The depth of his loneliness as he talks to his toys touches us all. When he sings …his happiness is infectious.” – Genevieve Kazdin, VIDEO REVIEW
