It was geared more for children. I'm 21 and went with my 26 year old brother. The song and dance put us in a trance so we kind of dozed off a little but being one of the stories we heard as a child, we enjoyed it.

Description

Based on the award-winning and much-loved children’s book by Tomie dePaola, Strega Nona comes to the stage in the musical tale of a kindly witch who cures the ills of her tiny Italian village. When she hires Big Anthony to help out with chores, Strega Nona warns him not to mess with her magical pasta pot, but he touches it anyway. When Anthony is to his ears in pasta (literally), can Strega Nona save the day?
