It won’t take long for you to wrap your head around and connect with ‘Bachelor No. 378,’ the lead character performing in LOON.
Even though there are no spoken words, No. 378 – also known as Francis — communicates with gesture, posture, pause and comically timed movement. It’s a live action caricature that will pull at your sympathy and kick your funny bone.
Lighting, soundtrack and portions of radio broadcasts help establish mood and environment. These elements combined with the physical comedy are cleverly combined. I smiled and laughed throughout the entire performance skillfully acted out by Kate Braidwood of Wonderheads (Andrew Phoenix performs behind the scenes).
Loon is truly a love story that is appropriate for all ages. Be sure to arrive early. As word gets out this show is a likely to be sold out and seating is first come, first serve. Cost is 10 Rogue Bucks which is a bargain for this Wonder of a performance. Keep that in your big head.
