Dark and bleak sets, thrilling music that cuts through your spin likeaknife (or razor) a perfect cast lead by Broadway greats Hearn andLansbury. This is exciting theatre flawlessly transferred to the smallscreen. Sondheim is the most talented songwriter of our age and Todd ishis Masterpiece, from th...
First of all, I have watched this show since I was a little toddler, andIhave always loved it. Sure, maybe I didn't understand it when I was thatyoung, but I still enjoyed it! And now that I have been able tounderstandit for several years, I love it even more. The score of this musical isthemost ...
I have only praise for this film. From start to finish it captured thebrilliance of Stephen Sondheim's musical. I am not a big fan of musicalsmost of them are very overdone. This one however changed my mind. I am anactor myself and have actully played Sweeney and I know how hard this roleis. George ...
Even if you're not a "theatre person," I highly recommend that you see this.Based off of a play of the same name by Christopher Bond (which, in turn,had been based off of an old London legend), Sondheim did a wonderful jobbringing it to the musical theatre stage. The score is just amazing-- by farSo...
I have owned a copy fo this for ages now, on video, but will definitely bebuying the DVD release.Angela Lansbury and George Hearne are the unmistakable people to performthese legendary roles.This is suberb theatre at its peak, what a cast, the entire crew, thestaging and the lighting are fantastic, ...
Though the video technology may be dated, this classic musical play, now onDVD, is the best version of Sondheim's most important and polished work onBroadway. If you've never seen SWEENEY TODD, then you must buy this DVD. Isaw this production in November 1980 at Kennedy Center in Washington--andfe...
There are no flaws in this production. Perfectly entertaining, fun, andworthy of respect.This is what theatre is all about. Definitely not for the very young, butslightly older kids will get a great kick out of seeing it and can beintroduced to theatre this way.Astounding and amazing....
One of Sondheim's most shocking musicals. After seeingit,it's hard to believe this is the same man who's given usmusicals like "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to theForum", "A Little Night Music" or "Passion." Lansbury andHearn are both brilliant in their roles. The music is magnificent. The sets...
I own a copy of this film and have always loved it. I comment here,however, because I saw the PBS presentation of a concert version of SweeneyTodd earlier this week. That production was put on by the San FranciscoOpera and starred George Hearn and Patti LuPone. In the early '80s Hearnreplaced Len...
I saw "Sweeney Todd" on Broadway in 1980. It starred George Hearn andfeatured most of the other cast principals who appeared in the nationaltouring company production, which was videotaped for TV in Los Angeles in1982. Last night I watched the new DVD release of the Los Angelesproduction, although...
"Sweeney Todd" is in my opinion one of a few "perfect" musicals. Like"My Fair Lady" and "West Side Story" it has a wonderful, intelligentscore. It offers the two leads and several supporting charactersinteresting roles. It has a timeless theme, revenge. It has a good dealof humor, and is just as pow...
Some aspects of this production are good, such as the performances of AngelaLansbury, George Hearn, Cris Groenendaal, and Sal Mistretta. But am I theonly one who is distracted by the horrible performance by Betsy Joslyn asJohanna? She is terrible! She slauters the songs with her screechy voiceand...
I own this video as well as the concert version of the musical withPatti Lupone and George Hearn with the San Francisco SymphonyOrchestra. George Hearn is fantastic in my book as are AngelaLansbury and the composer, Stephen Sondheim. This musical isoperatic in scope and shows much ingenuity in com...
The story of Sweeney Todd evokes memories of the work of classicwriters like Charles Dickens, and more contemporary writers like EdwardGory. As a musical, it naturally becomes more like the musical LesMiserables. Both deal with the grim effects of poverty in theIndustrial Revolution, and the breakdo...
This is the Sweeney Todd to watch. I first watched the Tim Burtonversion back when it came out and I liked it; it wasn't one of myfavorite movies but it wasn't a stinker either. It wasn't until a fewyears later I knew what I was missing.After watching this version, you can never go back to that Burt...
I am not a fan of Broadway musicals but I can say without a doubt thatSweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street is certainly my personalfavourite. Why? Well I think the story is pretty good and some of themusic is the best I've heard in the genre. I saw the Tim Burtonblockbuster made a couple o...
I don't think I can add to the praise given to this wonderfulproduction. The musical itself is a masterpiece in its own right, and Ihonestly loved this production. I loved the darkness and bleakness ofthe sets, and that while the costumes are nothing fancy they areeffective and nice to look at. The ...
Last year, I fell in love with the Tim Burton's version of Sweeney Toddso I wanted to check out the other versions of this musical and I foundthis one at the library. Though I think Burton's is best, probablybecause I like film a lot better than theater, this is still a greatproduction of the story....
The genius that is Stephen Sondheim was never more prominentlydisplayed as it was in his 1979 "Musical Thriller" SWEENEY TODD, aGothic, gory, grisly, yet delicious musical concoction about a dementedbarber who returns to London to exact revenge on the evil Judge who notonly had him permanently exile...
I can't get over the quality of the score, the book, and theperformances. This is the first production I've ever seen of SweeneyTodd so I have no others to compare it to. But the impact is so strong,I just can't imagine anything better.First, there's the music -- take "Johanna" (Act II), during whic...
I viewed my videotape last night, for the first time in at least tenyears. I found the work itself and the performances just as gripping asthey were in my memory. George Hearn, of course,was the master of therole of Sweeney; there is never a touch of softness in hisdetermination to wreak vengeance o...
I recently got a copy of this and am enjoying it immensely. Definitelyoneof the best musicals I've seen.I've enjoyed Angela Lansbury and George Hearn in occasional episodes of"Murder, She Wrote," but I'm not sure if anything compares to this. Withtheir talent, they make a terrific team.I must say I ...
Not having seen the 1936 version of this story, I cannot offer anycomparison there. I can, however, state that Stephen Sondheim's musicaltreatment of this story is absolutely genius. Only Sondheim could come upwith music and lyrics that are stellar in their own right, yet perfectlysuited to the ve...
I saw this version about a decade ago, and have been looking for it eversince. I just recently found an original VHS version, and purchased it for$125.00. Sounds crazy, but if you, like me, consider it as one of the bestthe Broadway musical stage has ever produced, you wouldn't even think twice.Why,...
I liked this version of Sweeney Todd. I was introduced to it in my TheatreClass and I thought the production was brilliant. Angela Lansbury did afantastic job playing Mrs. Lovett and George Hearn was awesome as SweeneyTodd. They definetley deserved the emmy and tony awards they received fortheir...
