Review from BP

The acting, the set and the venue were all first rate - no questions about it. From a technical standpoint the show was well executed. The main prop (the barber shop/meat pie bakery/slaughterhouse) served its purpose extremely well. The piece...continued

Both my boyfriend and I agree that this was an excellent production. The acting and singing were first class. The stage design and costuming were also incredibly good. I particularly liked their use of perspective to make the stage look much...continued

The performance itself was great. Excellent acting and singing, very well done and really nothing I would have changed except the way too loud screeching noise when someone died. The story itself is very similar to the movie that was done a few...continued

I have seen Sweeney Todd at least 5 times previously, not including the movie--this is far and away the best, The direction, the cast, the set, all were wonderful. Really enjoyed it.

Review from Gary Schwab

I've seen other performances of Sweeney Todd. This one was very well performed and fairly true, I think, to the original script and design.
I like that the political undertone of Sweeney becoming a mad butcher in response to his life being ruined...continued

Review from Stacy Ray Shaffer

This was a wonderful production! The cast was deep with uber-talented voices & the lighting and sound techs deserved their own standing ovation! The lighting made a dark comedy 10 shades creepier. My entire family loved it, even my children....continued

This is a spectacular production of a landmark musical. I've seen "Sweeney Todd," quite a few times before; this show still gave me goose bumps. Go see it!

Love how easy it is to go to this venue--free parking, small theater (don't think there is a bad seat) and well done performances. Thought this particular play utilized scene changes very well. We were on the left side and no obstructed view at...continued

Review from Andy Leahy

This version of Sweeney Todd was very exciting and moved along very quickly. The singing was first rate as was most of the acting, especially Liz McCartney as Ms. Lovett. The chorus was very powerful. The set & lighting were very creative.

Easy to reach from the northern suburbs...continued

Excellent singing and costumes for this musically stirring show. Fine sound and seating, though some numbers with multiple voices are difficult to hear clearly or understand. Sondheim fans should enjoy this production but the material and...continued
