Robinson Crusoeby Ken Raabe
Directed by John Szostek

November 21 – December 20, 2008

Piccolo takes to the high seas with a castaway tale written by Ken Raabe, who has tossed this classic into a blender to create a tale of Robinson Crusoe meets Survivor meets Gilligan's Island meets Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea.

Throw in some fearsomely funny cannibals, an evil media producer, hilarious songs, sailors, cross-dressing old dames, and an underwater battle with a giant squid and you have Piccolo's "Robinson Crusoe."

Here's what our critics say:

"Slapstick fun for the kids and naughty double entendre for the adults." – Robert Lorzel, Pioneer Local

"No brow is too low here. Synchronize spit and sea sickness, a black-lit nautical ballet including a giant squid...and peppy vaudeville choruses that reinvent perpetual motion are all brought out. Sublimely silly." – Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader

"Perfect for those who enjoy outlandish humor." – Brian Murphy, Evanston Roundtable
