Chief villain Dostoyana Ursine (Andi Snelling) is given abundant pathological rage and loathing and very nearly steals the show. Clearly not about to be limited by the radio play format, Snelling contorted her face to show disdain and malevolence, and made her fellow actors call on superhuman reserves of stoicism to avoid laughing.
Clown-like, engaging... Andi is an accomplished singer, a talented and warm performer.

You can’t help but love Snelling’s animated facial expressions and pantomime-like movements. Her style is unique, clever and charming.
The chorus of maids - here Jane Barry, Andi Snelling and Mia Landgren - are compellingly morbid caricatures, by turns sexy, caustic and finally, baleful. There are also fine impressions of the clever, gangsterish Odysseus.
I am charmed by Snelling’s vivacity, her clever transition from narration to song to dance and to moments of quiet reflection... A performer who lights up the stage.
