Sweeney Todd 


"Dark and beautiful with humor and heart and horror executed (pun intended) by artists working at the top of their form - director, actors, designers, writers, orchestrator. I saw this in Los Angeles with George Hearn but was already in love with the score that I had listened to multiple times both viscerally and analytically. I had staged it in my head, but threw out all my blocking when I saw what Hal Prince had done with it! Definitely on my personal list of 'The five greatest shows of all time' - Sondheim's masterwork IMHO."
