The weather was very warm for February.. I wore jeans, a casual top and jeans jacket. I'm glad I had the jacket because it was a little cool in the theatre. I wore comfortable shoes so we could walk around Old Town before and after the play..

I went to a Sunday matinee. The weather was really nice and I was afraid it would be hard to find a place to park, so I took the trolley! No stress! It was an easy five minute walk to the theatre from the station.

One of the best productions I have ever seen in San Diego. Every actor was top notch and the set and orchestra were outstanding. I have seen Sweeney Todd on Broadway (2 different productions with Patti Lupone) and this was right up there with...continued

Description

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.
