SWEENEY TODD
SAN FRANCISCO OPERA
9/12-10/13/2015
The rare instance of a musical thriller, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe!Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, SWEENEY TODD nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor: audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.At the show's core is a challenging score of epic proportion with two tasty tour de force roles in Sweeney and his comic female accomplice Mrs. Lovett. Although it has been extremely popular with opera companies and in concert presentation, SWEENEY TODD is equally effective as an intimate chamber musical.

CANDIDE
Sacred Fools Theater
9/4-10/17/2015
adapt: Jon Jory; dir: Paul Plunkett. Voltaire's wildly imaginative novella Candide comes to the stage at Sacred Fools, in a freely adapted production that transplants its fantastical satire into the American South. After an indiscreet affair gets him booted off his home plantation, native Louisiana boy Candide finds himself thrust into a cruel world of betrayal and injustice. But this decent-hearted, down-home fellow is determined to hold fast to his optimistic belief in the essential goodness of human nature -- if only human nature didn't keep killing his friends and stealing his sheep. This innovative and fast-paced production will have you laughing and pondering in equal doses.
