Based on a version of Sweeney Todd by Christopher Bond

Stephen Sondheim’s haunting musical thriller has been hailed "the greatest musical of the past half-century” by the Wall Street Journal. Sophisticated and uncompromising, “Sweeney Todd” 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.

BWWS BLOG - The Safety Courtain: Quien canta, su mal espanta
by Javier A. Gabrielssön - Sep 5, 2013

Eso de que 'quien canta, su mal espanta' toma especial sentido con los musicales de terror, y es que son escasas las ocasiones en las que el argumento de un musical basado en una novela o pelicula de terror da miedo de verdad. Sin duda, la musica parece alejarnos de todos los males, aunque haya quien se ponga malo con Pitingo o El Sueño de Morfeo. Solo la musica 'clasica' contemporanea que si que es verdaderamente acojonante y puede provocar ansiedad en el oyente incluso cuando trata de contar una bonita historia de amor (si no me crees, escucha a Jose Maria Sanchez Verdu) (more...)

BWW Reviews: Kritzerland Celebrates Third Anniversary with The Songs That Got Away Part II
by Don Grigware - Sep 3, 2013

On Sunday evening September 1, Kritzerland celebrated its third anniversary and 37th show at Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal. Entitled The Songs That Got Away II, it featured a batch of songs from various composers/musicals that Bruce Kimmel considers great but that over time have received far less airplay than deserved. In short, they have just not attained a solid popularity. Many of these songs are familiar like 'Some People' from Gypsy, but, it certainly did not gain the fame of, say, 'Everything's Coming Up Roses'... but should have. Some of the lesser known but beautiful tunes like 'It Must Be Spring' by Michel Legrand and the Bergmans are so good that it seems a shame it did get nominated for awards. Featured on this stellar program were dynamic singers Valerie Perri, Kay Cole, Jane Noseworthy, speciaLguest star Sharon McNight, Dan Callaway, Joshua Finkel, Jenna Lee Rosen, and sisters Sami and Sarah Staitman. John Boswell brilliantly served as musical director at the piano throughout the 90-minute set. (more...)
