Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - 1979 - Off-Broadway

Based on the 1937 Walt Disney film

This retelling of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is derived from a Broadway play that debuted at the Little Theatre on West 44th Street, New York City, on October 31, 1912. It was presented by legendary producer Winthrop Ames, who had written it under the pseudonym "Jessie Braham White." The work was billed as the "first play written entirely for the enjoyment of children."

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.
