City Parks Foundation is proud to announce the encore run of its hit 2007 production, Pippi beginning January 15, 2013 at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park.
More info from the press release:
Pippi is a fresh retelling of the classic "Pippi Longstocking" tales by Astrid Lindgren, adapted for the stage by award winning playwright, Zakiyyah Alexander. The production features nearly two dozen, hand-made marionettes crafted by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre.
In addition to the brilliant artistry of the production, kids and families will enjoy the incredible adventures of quick-witted and super-strong Pippi as she overcomes bullies and burglars, all while fending off social conventions that threaten to prevent her friends from being creative.
"We welcome kids and families to enjoy this revival of 'Pippi,'" said Alison Tocci, President of City Parks Foundation. "The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre is one of the most enchanting children's theaters in the country and a perfect place to honor Astrid Lindgren, Sweden's legendary author of children's literature."
Pippi is directed by Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre's Artistic Director Bruce Cannon, with original set design by Kevin Roach and a dynamic score from Darryl Kojak.
