The Strange and Terrible True Tale of Pinocchio (the Wooden Boy) as Told by Frankenstein's Monster (the Wretched Creature) 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through April 14 2012
Price: $10-$20
In this decidedly non-Disney version of Pinocchio, the Neo-Futurists take the dark, twisted tale written by Italian author Carlo Collodi in the late 19th century and twist it just a bit more. It's bizarrely and excellently narrated by Frankenstein’s monster (Guy Massey), who’s more than a little bitter that he has no name. In keeping with the original version of the story, the plot is disjointed and somewhat nonsensical, not to mention violent: Pinocchio kills the talking cricket that tells him how to behave and is later hanged by a devious fox and his sidekick (but is brought back to life by the Blue Fairy). There’s no moral to this story, but there are—in true Neo-Futurist fashion—plenty of strange and funny elements, including a trio of rapping rabbits and a wheelchair drawn by a dozen-odd My Little Ponies. —Julia Thiel
