Based on a version of Sweeney Todd by Christopher Bond

Stephen Sondheimís haunting musical thriller has been hailed "the greatest musical of the past half-centuryĒ by the Wall Street Journal. Sophisticated and uncompromising, ďSweeney ToddĒ has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor. You will find yourself laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.

BWW Blog: Sebastian Trevino - Revivals
by Guest Blogger: Sebastian Trevino - Jan 9, 2017

Revivals can be a tricky subject. People fall in love with the details that make up a show without realizing it. I mean, how can Elphaba's grandiose Defying Gravity first act ending ever be done differently? What about Phantom's epic chandelier drop, how can that be altered? Yes, we tend to cherish certain elements from a show and at times even consider them to be irreplaceable. I, like some of you, am one of those theatre fans. So yeah, I'll admit, I was a bit worried when I found out Mexico's Rent Revival was going to have a completely new take on this modern musical classic.  (more...)
