"...It’s no surprise that Faction of Fools’ take on the Dickens classic would contain the traditional commedia dell’arte masks that figure into all of the company’s productions. But this production also features some gigantic, caricature-style heads (designed by Tara Cariaso and Aaron Elson of Waxing Moon Masks) that draw even greater attention to the characters donning them. That includes an adorable but pitiable Tiny Tim (Michael Sprouse), a wistful young Fan, Scrooge’s sister (Julie Garner), and an ebullient Ghost of Christmas Present (Toby Mulford). These exaggerated masks have a tinge of creepiness to them, but really help in lending an artistic footprint to director Matthew R. Wilson’s production..." -Missy Frederick,
