Who said I counted you among the fangirls, Isabella? I don't know anything about you.
Farewell, Sweeney! Sep 4

The day I saw this show was one of the happiest of my life, for so many reasons.
It's a pity to see they've all gone now.
I really think that Sweeney was a success story. No one expected such an artistically abstract show with a small cast, no dancing and no greet witches to last more than a couple of months. In light of the circumstances, Sweeney did very well and in staying open for almost a year, proved that serious art stil has a place on the New York stage. With Compan
I hate that the film industry seems to think that only people in New York and LA are worthy of good 'thinking' movies. I wanted so badly to see The Great New Wonderful, but did that come to Ohio? Of course not. If the cultural powers that be want Middle America to stop being so bland, they ought to learn how to share.
I think Sweeney's niche will be Burton fans and people who ha
For those of us worried about Johnny's vocal ability:

Burton's visions are quite singular and entirely one-note. So far all of his films have taken the same approach and I don't have a lot of faith in his ability to collaborate.
What's this about Danny Elfman? How does he factor in? This is a SONDHEIM musical. They don't need any more music. I know that the DeppBurtonElfman orgy has been going strong for sixteen years, but it's time to give it a temporary break.
Everything about Burton is wrong for this project. I love his work, I really do, but he makes cutesy-goth cartoons. Because it's a musical, people will already have a tough time taking Sweeney seriously, and Burton's tone will only make that worse.
Johnny could honestly act his way out of a paper bag. I think he'll be good, but not great because he'll be doing it with a Burtonesque mentality. <

Nope, not in a remote part of Iowa... for those of you who are getting it, what channel is it on? I have like... two versions of PBS and neither of them have it.
God. I HATE living in a cultureless vaccumm almost as much as I hate trying to spell vaccuum. We're not even getting "Broadway: The Golden Age". It's some random stupid show I've never heard of.

It looks as though Piazza will not be airing at any point in time in my area.... on SOME TV schedules. I've found information that makes it sound as though it's going to be broadcasted everywhere, some that says it will only be on certain versions of PBS (ARE there different versions? It looks like it, but that doesn't make sense) and my local paper TV guide says nothing about it. Is there any reliable source of information about this show? PBS and my cable company are giving me different answer
How exactly do you know all of this? If there's some kind of website I can look at, I'd like to have the link so I can stop pestering you for information. I do sort of need information on the revivals because I'm a bit short in that category.
