The Reviews Are In!
  
"My Son Pinocchio strikes a heartfelt chord.  With several enchanting songs from Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz added to Disney's Academy Award-winning melody, When You Wish Upon a Star, this fairytale also rings with notes of 21st century attitude."
 - Third Coast Digest
 
"My Son Pinocchio makes family connections -- it's a great choice that brings adults and kids together, both on stage and in the audience."
