A runaway hit at TheatreWorks' New Works Festival, The Great Pretender now receives a fully staged world premiere at the Lucie Stern Theatre. In this comic tale of friendship, love and letting go, a children's TV host is consumed with the passing of a cherished puppeteer. Evoking the small-screen shows that shaped the childhoods of so many, The Great Pretender moves beyond the painted sets and colored lights to discover that people (as well as puppets) need a helping hand. TheatreWorks kick-starts its new season with this bittersweet comedy from David West Read (The Performers). Learn More

An outstanding performance by a talented cast ranging anywhere from about 5 to 25 years old. Brings the classic fairy tale backed by Tchaikovsky's timeless score to a new level of believability when the dancer's ages actually matches the characters'! Great fun and beautifully choreographed!

Very nice venue and performance. The principal dancers were good and the children were adorable. my favorite as always was the Arabian dance.. Any seat in the house is a good one. My only criticism is of the music. It was too loud and tinny...continued
