In Wanderlusters Present “Achtung Grimm!” jobless circus stars stage the Brothers Grimm tales. A mix of comedy, song, dance, puppets and a lot of attitude make for a brilliant rediscovery of the Germanic tales. From Snow White’s Mirror Mirror singing how he determines “Who is the fairest of them all,” to The Juniper Tree’s Stepmother singing “What’s in it for me?” before decapitating her Stepson, The Wanderlusters give the Grimm tales a comic yet menacing twist.
