Sweeney Todd | Broadway

Sweeney Todd | BroadwayThe revival of Sweeney Todd opened last night to rave reviews. This has always been a favorite show for us here at OC Chronicle and we count it as an American Musical Masterpiece (That's right, an AMM!) I'm a little skeptical of the concept of this staging since they are not using a full chorus. Nothing beats the overwhelming sound of the original Broadway cast singing the Ballad of Sweeney Todd in seven part harmony! Buy the CD, it's a seminal work from demi-God Sondheim. Also, after browsing the web page, I just get the feeling that the whole thing is a little to "Brechtian" in feel. It shouldn't look quite so Berlin circa 1928, I think.

One of OC Chronicle's inside Broadway sources has reported that the daily wrap today is not as large as the rave reviews should suggest, so if you are in New York, see this one before January as it might not make it past the holiday season.
