"His skin was pale and his eye was odd" -- and that's only the beginning of what's unsettling about Mr. Todd, the barber/serial killer at the dark heart of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. Set in gloomy alleys of 19th-century London, this production from Lyric Stage Company of Boston "attends the tale" of Todd who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his bloody revenge. A legendary smash in 1979, this black comedy won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. Recently adapted into a hit movie starring Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Boston in a vibrant production directed by Spiro Veloudos. Learn More

Enjoyable zany play, with the usual Sondheim sound. The performers were very good to excellent, but they weren't miked so I couldn't pick up the words on a good deal of the patter songs. The Lyric Stage is a pleasant venue, and if you park at the 100 Clarendon garage you're only about a block away- very convenient. For this play our Goldstar seats were very good.

I've seen Into the Woods many many times, and this is not one of the better ones. I usually see something new and bold in each performance, but this was pretty basic. If you've never seen this show before, this probably won't disappoint you. ...continued
