“There's some expertly droll playing here, especially from Michael Xavier who doubles as a cockily louche Wolf and a snootily self-absorbed Prince Charming.”
Paul Taylor, The Independent.
“Michael Xavier’s wolf is priapic and exciting.”
Henry Hitchings, The Evening Standard.
“One shining exception is Agony, which wittily punctures the pretensions of two popinjay princes and is excellently delivered by Simon Thomas and Michael Xavier. The latter doubles as a child-molesting wolf who both scares, and dangerously excites.”
Michael Billington, The Guardian.
“Xavier is equally expressive as a dim, philandering Prince with a tendency to skip.”
Heather Neill, What’s On Stage.
“And Michael Xavier and Simon Thomas entertain enormously as prancing princes revelling in despair.”
Sarah Hemming, The Financial Times.
“Equal achievement comes from Michael Xavier doubling as the hip-swivelling Wolf and as Cinderella’s Prince.”
John Thaxter, The British Theatre Guide.
“Michael Xavier is a sexily persuasive Wolf; doubling as Cinderella’s Prince, he joins Rapunzel’s Prince (Simon Thomas) in stealing the show’s first half with ‘Agony’.”
Anita Butlet, London Theatre Guide.
