Review: SWEENEY TODD THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET at The Muny Photo Review: SWEENEY TODD THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET at The Muny
by James Lindhorst - Jul 18, 2022

The Muny and its casting partners The Telsey Office have assembled a killer cast who deliver Soundheim‚Äôs score with razor-sharp vocals. Ben Davis‚Äô (Sweeney Todd) characterization and descent into madness may be the finest acting performance ever to darken The Muny Stage. The only thing more delicious than Mrs. Lovett‚Äôs pies is the wicked verbal waltz he and Carmen Cusack (Mrs. Lovett) deliver with ‚ÄėA Little Priest‚Äô to end Act 1. ¬†Cusack‚Äôs Lovett is baked with exceptional charm and wit as she delivers the blackest of comedy. Riley Noland‚Äôs (Johanna) operatic soprano and Jake Boyd‚Äôs (Anthony Hope) silky tenor pair pleasingly. The ensemble‚Äôs robust presence, serving as a Greek chorus to drive the narrative, is felt every time they take the stage. The chorus‚Äô dark and brooding presence opens the production with ‚ÄėThe Ballad of Sweeney Todd‚Äô and drags you into this grim tale of murderous madness.
