In 2003, Pinocchio received the National Award for children' s theatre, distinction given by the Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs.
In 2009, Ani Creţu received the award for Best Leading Actress, for the part of Pinocchio, in the "Naj, Naj, Naj" International Children's Theatre Festival in Zagreb, Croatia.
Also, in 2009, Pinocchio received the award for Best Performance at the International Children's Theatre Festival "Magic Curtain", held in Targovishte, Bulgaria. 

 

What the critics say

Cornel Todea takes up the classic story and provides the audience with a different version, much more modern, of Carlo Collodi’s work, a version which is charming, through its visual effects, through the grace and elegance delivered by each scene. 
Ileana Lucaciu- Timpul liber, 2003

The performance staged, with true professionalism, by Cornel Todea, benefits in a rich scenography, with ceremonial value (Viaceslav Vutcariov), which is seductive through its picturesque, chromatic elegance and costume expressivity, with insightful, sometimes ironic, details of dress. These are complemented by the dynamic scenes of music and dance (choreography by Păstorel Ionescu) and by the lively coloured sounds, chosen also by the director, with a significant contribution to the rhythm and fluency of the performance.
The world of the big and of the small, of the flesh and blood characters and of the wooden puppet brought to life through love and special gifts, of the circus, of the cabaret and of the music hall or the world of the houses of perdition, parade in front of our eyes, together with Pinocchio’s mishaps and with that feeling of playfulness, which transcends the entire performance, kindling the joy of playing on stage and the feeling of a good time in the audience.
