BWW Review: For TheatreWorks Florida's Glorious SWEENEY TODD the Devil is in the Overlooked Details
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 18, 2014

Amongst the vast majority of musical theatre devotees, there is little debate that Stephen Sondheim is the greatest writer that the artform has ever known. So, as I sat watching TheatreWorks Florida's soaring Opening Night performance of his darkest masterpiece, Sweeney Todd: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, I found my mind consistently going over his three principles of lyric writing: 1) 'Content dictates form.' 2) 'Less is more.' 3) 'God is in the details.' Now, before I go much further, I want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this production, especially the phenomenal voices and inventive staging, and this show is a must see for any local lover of Sondheim's work. I doubt that you will find a better sounding group of actors on an Orlando stage any time soon. Music Director David Foust clearly did incredible work on this production. (more...)
