'An inspired modern version of the story, given a fine momentum by Crackjaw the witch, a ferocious hate-mongering villainess. There's also a cheeky goblin called Dunt, a gorgeous pantomime dog called Billy, a magnificent pair of (female) Ugly sisters, and a hero who amounts to something more than the usual insipid Prince. The audience participation rages fast and furious...'Scotsman
