The Adventures of

Pinocchio has been dramatised by Elton's Billy Elliot partner.

The show is playing through March 27 at the Deaf West Theatre in North Hollywood, California.

 Lee Hall has created an adaptation steeped in the Italian tradition of commedia dell'arte

- a form of physical comedy which lends itself perfectly to Deaf West Theatre's signature, award-winning combination of signed and voiced theater. Brimming with clever political subtext and sly social commentary, this comic production will appeal to most ages--although the dark themes aren't recommended for children under ten.
