Review: Snow White & the Seven Poofs, at Karma Sanctum Soho Hotel

Wonderfully interactive, adult-only pantomime is an enjoyable take on a classic fairy tale

Simon Gross in Snow White and the Seven Poofs

IF pantomime isn’t already camp enough, this adult-only show brings a whole new level of raunch to the stage.

Mr Showbiz himself, Simon Gross, joins the show as it returns to the London stage, playing Queen Showbiz alongside Aaron Johns, AKA Vickie Vivacious as Snow White.

An energetic cast of friends, including Prince Donkeydick of Soho, Magic Mirror, Butch, Dom, Muscle Mary and Skinhead accompany the pair in this sex-fuelled take on the classic fairy tale, that is full of pumped-up performances and a friendly-but-dirty sense of humour.

There are a myriad of pop culture references, party classics such as You’re the One That I Want and YMCA, and Snow White herself performs Madonna’s Like A Virgin among others in perfect panto-esque style.

The cast as a whole are a lively bunch, and the show is wonderfully interactive.

All in all, an enjoyable and modern take on a classic fairy tale.
