    Sondheim Seen in Light and Shadow

    Ben Brantley

    July 7, 2010: So charmingly frolicsome, so scarily intense. Two sides — and two ages — of one man’s life can be discovered roughly 20 miles apart in the Berkshires this week, glowing and glowering across the hills like the bright and hidden sides of the moon. These contrasting aspects of Stephen Sondheim, that most multifaceted of composers of musicals, are embodied by two thoughtfully assembled shows that reflect different chapters in his life. Experienced as companion pieces, they also suggest the extraordinary distance that Mr. Sondheim, who turned 80 in March, traveled in between.

    July 7, 2010: You couldn't ask for a more perfect Mrs. Lovett than the one Harriet Harris is presenting in the Barrington Stage Company's mostly compelling production of Sweeney Todd.

    Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street- A Musical Thriller

    Elyse Sommer

    July 7, 2010: Stephen Sondheim has been much feted for his unique contribution to the world of musical theater, never more so than in this year of his 80th birthday. On Broadway, courtesy of some ingenious merging of filmed interviews and live performance, Sondheim himself starred in Sondheim on Sondheim (review). Angela Lansbury, the original Mrs. Lovett of Sondheim's masterpiece, Sweeney Todd — and like Sondheim, an octogenarian and national treasure— played Madame Armfeldt in a revival of A Little Night Music (review). To top off all these well-deserved accolades and launch Barrington Stage's Main Stage season, the company's founder and artistic director, Julianne Boyd , has mounted a thrilling revival of the musical thriller, Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
