There is a show playing in LA right now that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It’s called WOOD BOY DOG FISH and it’s an incredible dark and haunting rendition of the story of Pinocchio.
Geppetto is a degenerate alcoholic. The Blue Fairy is the deceased architect of a haunted carnival ride. The Whale *IS* that ride, revealing your deepest fears. Children go to Fun Land to be murdered by a deranged maniac. Jimminy Cricket is a corporate sponsor who wants to sell you cigarettes and whiskey. And the puppet without strings? He is without doubt the best part of all....but I don’t want to reveal too much...
This show is incredible, a masterpiece. The story will have you laughing your ass off and crying within the same 15 minute stretch. The performances are out of this world. The art direction to die for. The sets are immense. The costumes uncanny. The score is sublime. It’s all only playing for one more weekend. GO SEE THIS SHIT. It’s not like a movie, once this is gone it’s gone forever. I promise promise promise you won’t regret it. This coming from someone who admittedly gives zero fucks about theater and stage plays.
