Steven LaVigne’s Twisted Take on Snow White Still Promises a Happy Ending
Playwright Steven LaVigne is taking liberties with the Snow White fairy tale. In his new holiday panto version, produced by Classics Lost ‘N’ Found, the Queen re-adjusts her attitude toward Snow White. The Magic Mirror is bi-polar and the seven dwarfs have had to leave their mining jobs because of allergies and asthma. The Prince also has his own set of issues: he’s afraid of Teddy Bears and thinks the apples are bewitched rather than poisonous. A great opportunity to celebrate tradition and turn it on its head at the same time. Lavigne has co-directed the panto with Dawn Linnell.
