GRIM AND FISCHER: A Deathly Comedy in Full-Face Mask presented by WONDERHEADS as part of the 2012 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. You can read the show description here.
There are no spoken lines in GRIM AND FISCHER, only well-executive music and sound effects. Two performers bring character and emotion to three roles while denied an actor’s most-used tool, their face.
The masks are indeed “wonderheads.” Oversized, with caricature-like features, it’s amazing how varied they look when your viewing angle changes. The eyes of the mask also seem to move as your perspective changes. How ever the actors see out of the masks was undetectable from my seat, which only reinforces the illusion.
Cute, funny and touching, (with a bit of an “Up” vibe to it) GRIM AND FISCHER is a solid production that can be enjoyed by all ages.
