A man. The moon. A most peculiar love story.

Wonderheads are back! Creators of Fringe hit Grim & Fischer return with a love story that whisks a man to the moon and back. Featuring larger than life mask performance, fantastical puppetry and a style that has been described as ‘live-action Pixar’, the Wonderheads wonder, can a man truly love the moon? Winner of the 2012 Edmonton Critics Choice Award, Best of Fest Edmonton and Vancouver 2012.

★★★★★ “I’d give it more than five stars – I’d give it the moon.” – CBC.

WONDERHEADS were last year's winners of the Full Frontal Pick of the Fringe as well as the League of Cincinnati Theatre's Award for Outstanding Production.

Wonderheads is a multi award winning physical theatre company specializing in mask performance and exquisite visual storytelling. Their work is performed in full-face mask, a wordless form that mixes European larval mask traditions with character mask styles, resulting in a craft rarely seen on North American stages. Audiences have described the experience as watching a living cartoon – the whimsy and imagination of Pixar or Jim Henson in theatrical form. In this distinct style of storytelling, with rich soundscapes, fantastical puppetry, timeless slapstick and masterful physical performances, Wonderheads make it their business to evoke a spirit of awe in even the most serious and respectable of adults.

    We're looking very much forward to performing alongside The Wonderheads for the 3rd time at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival! LOON sounds like a wonderful piece, and what a story to follow GRIM AND FISCHER. Can't wait to see the performance! Best wishes!

    As always, the Wonderheads put up a gorgeous show. I luckily caught it in Orlando, because I'm sure it will sell out like gangbusters. Don't miss it!!!

    4*- I would see it again
    And a second rating to cover degrees of weirdness ( a Fringe Festival standard)

    Wonderheads from Portland, OR provided one of the best shows last year, Grim and Fisher. This is an earlier piece, which shares many of the best elements. This piece set Fringe history by selling out all their shows before the first one. That is what earned reputation plus personal and media buzz will do. The story is excellent as is the silent, yet engaging acting. The props are creative. The sound effects are spot on. We could not help but compare it to last year's show, and that probably shaved off the half star. I will say this: if they bring this show back later this year, I will go see it again.

    A great romp through someone's grief and loneliness. This show has many charming, heartwarming, and funny moments. The whole family can see Loon and enjoy it.
