BWW Review: SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, Richmond Theatre Photo BWW Review: SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Dec 13, 2019

The annual pantomime at Richmond is always an entertaining affair. After last year's Peter Pan, we now turn to a glittering and very enjoyable version of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs. Comedian, writer and presenter Jo Brand is the star turn as the wicked Queen Lucretia. Brand takes a little while to settle into the rhythm of the show, but is a screeching baddie, with a throaty, cackling laugh. She maintains the sardonic and dry style that she is known for. Even when she appears to forget her lines, her request for a prompt gained laughs rather than groans. She is an evil, but also funny character and her scornful rendition of 'I Put A Spell On You' is her highlight.
