Ladies & Gentlemen, children of all ages! Come one, come all to the amazing, haunting, whimsical new musical GRIMM, a show going up this weekend at the NYC Fringe Festival 2012! We’ve been following the story on this about-to-blow-up show for weeks now because the show is that cool!
GRIMM is for children of all ages – you ‘adult’ children will love it! GRIMM tells the tale of twin sisters and rivals vying for a crown in a funky fairy tale. GRIMM features familiar characters created by the Brothers Grimm, from Hansel and Gretel to the wily Rumpelstiltskin, entwined with a new cast of ghostly characters who spin chilling new twists on fairy-tale classics. And who here doesn’t love fairies and girl fights?!
GRIMM has been hailed by Broadway producer Ken Davenport as one of the top 10 shows to see! It’s going up at the HERE theatre, 145 6th avenue, New York, NY (near Spring St and Varick). But go online and get your tickets today – the space is hauntingly intimate and tickets are limited! Grab your kids or the kid in you and head to GRIMM this weekend through August 22nd!

Q: In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
A: GRIMM is about all the different aspects of what it means to be a child: the good and the bad. It’s about our childhood love of the supernatural, whether it’s Harry Potter, E.T. or Superman. It’s about the lack of control that we all felt as children and that seemingly unquenchable desire to take charge of our destinies. It’s about a child’s deepest and darkest fears of all things that go bump in the night. But ultimately, like all good fairy tales, it captures a child’s intrinsic sense of right & wrong, good & evil, fair and unfair; the “black and white”-ness of it all that somehow gets skewed and turns to gray with age. My biggest hope for our show is that the children who see it will understand and relate to it and the adults will get to be kids again for a short period of time.
Kenny’s music is amazing, the show is enchanting and the cast is incredible! Whats not to love? Get your tickets today!
