Despicable, indeed! Narrator Tim Curry brings the wicked, lovable character of Gru to life. Both those new to the story and those who loved the movie will be captured from the opening minutes of this production. The motley characters—the slightly over-the-hill villain, Gru; his nerdy nemesis, Vector; and the three orphan girls who steal his heart—are full of surprises, and a soundtrack enhances the fast-paced action. Curry expertly differentiates a cast of malefactors, including Mr. Perkins of the Bank of Evil and Gru’s staff genius, Dr. Nefarious. Curry also excels at giving orphans Margo, Edith, and Agnes distinct, youthful-sounding personalities. With Curry’s narration, it’s perfectly clear who will boldly go where no girl has sold robot cookies before, who will make a mess, and who will hug a unicorn.
