Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set in London, the musical tells the tale of the title character, who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and she bakes them into pies to get rid of the evidence. A legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed that it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. Recently adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie with Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts in a vibrant production directed by Robert Kelley. Learn More

I have mixed feelings for this play. It starts great and the acting is excellent throughout. However, as the drama progresses it goes into a predictable (even cliche) route. I found the end completely predictable and unsatisfying. If you walk out of the theater at the intermission, you would have got 95% of the message from the play.
About the acting, I specially enjoyed the acting of Sarah Moser on the difficult role of Mandy; but the other actors do not disappoint. These are four very strong actors with a difficult story.
Should you watch this play? Well, if you love excellent acting and drama, then I'd recommend it. If you are not into drama (i.e., you want happy stories), definitely skip it.
This production contains occasional adult language. Parental discretion is advised.
