The only similarities to Disney's Geppetto is that creator/performer/designer Carol Adinolfi goes by the same name (G., for short) and adores his puppets. A variation rather than update, Renee Philippi's tender script focuses Geppetto's struggle preparing a new show after the death of his wife and collaborator. That Geppetto's puppet theater specializes in Greek myth magnifies and helps heal his grief. Art and life are one in this workshop of hand-made creatures and the very human being who creates them - occasionally in full view of the audience.
