AMAZING!!

Sweeney Todd is a favorite musical of mine, but THIS version is OUTSTANDING! The score was pared down to not more than 9 instruments at a time (some people switch instruments), and the music was truly exceptional. It lost nothing in the translation, and it might have even been more powerful b/c the music was much more subtle than in the original orchestration. More amazingly still, the cast IS the pit orchetsra! I was amazed that the cast was able to memorize the entire musical score - singing, acting AND playing, and the show was impeccable! And all this without a conductor, really! The entire show is set in one place (no real scene changes) and the cast is the crew too. They manuever the chairs and boxes around on stage while they are singing and playing which gives the impression of multiple sets. Lastly, Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris were wonderful together - their chemistry made the show! But everyone in it is wonderful too. A theater experience like no other

EXCELLENT!

Thisis the most thirlling experince I've had since Jekyll and Hyde. This is the best sondheim musical in years. Sweeney Todd tells the story about a man who cuts and slites peoples throats and a young maiden who bakes them into pies. I saw this show on TV with George Hearn and Angela Lansbury. Now I get to see this live. I'm so happy with this show even though it's a bit strange because they eat people. I was at the edge of my seat. Michael Cerveris and Patti Lupone are wonderful as Mrs.Lovett and Sweeney Todd. This is the play that you would want to see over and over again. I'm going to see for the 2nd time next October. I can't stop talking about this wonderful but yet strange play. Wonderful. Two words for you Sweeney Todd. Go see it. I'm telling you It's Wonderful. I love it. If you have kids aged eight it's okay for them to go see it. Listen to me. It's Wonderful
