The folks in the Cygnet Theater company have done it again! I have seen three of their productions now (Sweeney, It's a Wonderful Life, and Hedwig) and all of them have been incredible.
First off, the Old Town Theater is a great venue. There are no bad seats, the ambiance is lovely, the sound is wonderful, and the stage is sizeable. The sets and props for this play were dramatic and dynamic; the actors really used them in a way that added to the experience.
The performers were amazing. Everyone was really on point. Always in key, timing perfect, they brought the play to life in song. Mrs. Lovett was particularly good, but everyone really made their part their own. I enjoyed every second of it and, looking around to other members of the audience, the sea of smiles indicated that everyone else was enjoying it too. This production takes care to involve the audience in various ways, which is not only fun but really draws you in emotionally. You care much more deeply for the characters because you feel like you're a part of the show.
All in all, this is one of the best productions I have seen in San Diego. Highly recommended. It would be worth every penny at full price, but since you have access to Goldstar prices, even better. See it!
Stephen Sondheim’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous "barber"-ism and culinary crime is a mix of macabre, visceral drama with howlingly funny dark humor. Sweeney Todd, a barber seeking revenge, joins forces with Mrs. Lovett, the proprietress of the pie shop downstairs from his barber shop, and soon the people of 19th century London are lining up for her wonderful and mysterious new meat pies with a grisly secret ingredient.
