Empress Ann? She’s behind you!
TORY high command still can’t find room for a long overdue peerage for the redoubtable Ann Widdecombe. But her box office appeal shows no sign of abating. The saintly Widders has been signed up to play the ‘regal and authoritative’ Empress of China in Aladdin at the Marina Theatre in Lowestoft. Regal and authoritative? Perfect type-casting.
