Smart Bets: Pinocchio

The Strange and Tragical Adventures of Pinocchio or Why Didn't I Just Stay a Damn Puppet? is the final production to be held at the Magnetic Theatre's Glen Rock Depot location — all the more reason to catch the last weeks of this "new reimagining" by local playwright John Crutchfield. According to press, the story "not only returns it to its hallucinatory roots, but turns it completely on its head. Billed as a 'morality tale in two inappropriate acts,' the play features local puppet-master Madison J. Cripps as the title character in a wild and irreverent take on what it means to be human." Starring Darren Marshall, Laura Tratnik, Valerie Meiss, Joe Carroll and Peter Lundblad. Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. until Saturday, March 23. $15.
