What a hoot! The show was quick and clocked in at around an hour, but the man's creativity and sense of fun was endlessly entertaining.

“Ennio is electric, eclectic shocker. Breezy, Campy, Fun.” – San Jose Mercury


Award-winning Italian comedian Ennio Marchetto, is ENNIO, a one man origami extravaganza! Audiences unfamiliar with the Venetian born Marchetto will be unprepared for what lies in store. Backed by an eclectic soundtrack of the latest hits and using an ingenious assortment of intricate paper costumes that defy description, Ennio morphs into pop culture icons. One moment he is Bruce Springsteen singing ‘Born in the USA’, the next he is Popeye dancing a jig. The list of parodies is endless and the ENNIO repertoire has expanded for the Wadsworth Theatre engagement to include such notables as: Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Wonder Woman, the (new) Pope, Liberace, Bruce Lee, Britney Spears, the Beach Boys, Billy Idol and more. No one is safe when Ennio picks up his paper cut-outs!
