SWEENEY TODD (2005) BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: November 3, 2005
Synopsis: A dark and mesmerizing journey through Victorian London, the play is the story of Benjamin Barker, a barber who escapes prison after 15 years to seek revenge on Judge Turpin, the man who unjustly imprisoned him and stole away his wife and child. When he returns to London, the deranged Barker changes his name to Sweeney Todd and joins forces with diabolical baker Mrs. Lovett.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"ONLY a few days after Halloween - a holiday, the horror movies tell us, that brings out the beast in the criminally insane - the inmates have indeed taken over the asylum. Brace yourself. They're putting on one helluva show.
Sweet dreams, New York. The thrilling new revival of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," which opened last night at the Eugene O'Neill Theater in a production starring Michael Cerveris and Patti LuPone, burrows into your thoughts with the poisoned seductiveness of a campfire storyteller who knows what really scares you. John Doyle, the show's ferociously inventive director and designer, has aimed his hypnotic interpretation of this 1979 musical at the masochistic child in everyone, the squirming tyke who wants to have his worst fears confirmed and dispelled in one breath."
