One of the best known saxophonists in the world, David Sanborn blends jazz, pop, rock and R&B into a smooth-as-silk sound that no other sax player has quite managed to copy. The career of this multiple Grammy winner was launched in 1975 by his (aptly-titled) debut album, Taking Off, and it hasn't come down since, spanning more than two dozen other albums. Established as both a soloist and a collaborator with the likes of Bowie, the Stones and Clapton, Sanborn now brings his "sweet-tart alto sound" (The New York Times) to Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beachfor an impassioned performance.

Impressive production, filled with fine acting and singing -- with the standouts being Norman Large as Sweeney Todd and Debbie Prutsman as Mrs. Lovett. (The entire cast was wonderful!). Loved the set design, including Mrs. Lovett's Pie Shop, Todd's barber area, and the minimal steps and stairs used to create the bridges and walkways of London. It's a dark, bloody, and funny show, and Musical Theater West does a wonderful job of bringing this production to life.

A Tony Award winner for Best Musical, Stephen Sondheim’s magnificent musical thriller tells the tale of the legendary Demon Barber of Fleet Street, hell-bent on revenge, who takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a delicious plot to slice their way through England’s upper crust. Justice will be served, along with lush melodies, audacious humor and bloody good thrills!
