NorthWestEnd - Victoria Wilmot, The Hunting of the Snark (Lowry Theatre)
...In my opinion Polly Smith gave the standout performance as the villainous blood thirsty Butcher, salivating at the thought of Snark meat and delivering the funniest lyrics of the show. Her comedic timing was superb and despite her vile character she was captivatingly funny and mesmerising to watch
The Times - Sam Marlow, The Hunting of the Snark (Vaudeville Theatre, West End)
...Polly Smith’s bloodthirsty Butcher is nastily comical and Sweeney Todd-scary
The Stage - Rosemary Waugh, The Hunting of the Snark (Sherman Theatre Cardiff)
... Polly Smith gives the standout performance as the villainous Butcher, smacking her chops at the thought of Snark meat and cackling through the funniest lyrics of the show
Fringe Review (Edinburugh 2015) - Heather Bagnall, The Hunting of the Snark.
...a knock out performance by the absolutely brilliant comedienne Polly Smith
Remote goat - Paul Goodman, Titus Andronicus.
...Polly Smith proved herself to be the most present performer on stage; a delight to watch even when she was only standing in the background.
The Stage - Derek Smith, Hold Me.
...Cue a jocular intake of breath from some men in the audience from which point Smith had won over both sexes present with her natural, assured delivery.
TimeOut London - Lucy Powell, Crimes of the Heart.
In Polly Smith, Nevares finds a character actress of note who, as the eldest and most emotionally crippled sister, is nuanced, touching and funny.
Camden New Journal - Charlotte Chambers, Crimes of the Heart.
Smith was particularly impressive. That girl is going places.
Worthing Herald. A Winters Tale.
Polly Smith, gave an outstanding performance as Queen Hermione
The Public Reveiws.com - Jenni Dixon, A Bedfull of Foreigners.
Polly Smith...Helga Philby...(was) the backbone of the performance... a very professional but enjoyable performance from her.
Extra! Extra! - Richard J. Thornton Repeat the Question.
Each of Smith's characterisations is snug with the script that leads it, and her work with director Garret Moore builds some of the most convincing snapshots you'll find in the London fringe.
