Sweeney Todd - 1982 - US Tour Tickets, News, Info & More

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.

It’s common knowledge that most of us who now work in the arts were at the bottom of the food chain in grade school- we were “dorks,” we were “weirdos,” we were....well, I can’t really say everything we were called, as it wasn’t as refined as the first two examples. I was no exception to this, and I had some rather dark and difficult times because of this treatment. I was the smallest of my classmates with wild and frizzy hair, constant acne, and a voice that was much too big for my physical size, all of which combined themselves with my obvious passion for the performing arts to make me a target for torment. Theatre gave me that escape, being a community where not only could I slip into someone else’s skin for a while, but also a community where I was accepted while in my own skin. Stephen Sondheim, of course, has always been an essential part of theatre, and he very quickly became an essential part of my life as I delved deeper and deeper into this art form.

I don't know how this would've happened, but I always thought I'd somehow meet Stephen Sondheim to thank him for the music he brought into my life. The beauty he created and the inspiration it instilled in me. I wanted to tell him his lyrics and stories are why I write, why I direct, and why I act. Instead, I write this and hope he can see it from wherever he is.

Después de la reciente noticia del fallecimiento del compositor Stephen Sondheim este última semana, hoy en ART ON STAGE llega este homenaje al autor. Este es un espacio creado por Zebra (@pantalonesdezebra) para recordar la importancia de ciertas producciones gracias al dibujo. Este Broadway Baby se enamoró del género gracias a su mentor Oscar Hammerstein II, que a su vez había revolucionado el musical en la época dorada de Broadway con SHOW BOAT primero y luego con OKLAHOMA! Con esta influencia y con este amor por el detalle Sondheim dio un vuelco a lo que se había hecho hasta entonces infundiendo sentido a cada palabra de sus obras, haciendo que sus personajes tuviesen tanta complejidad y tanta vida sobre el escenario que el público se sentiría identificado con sus problemas y tribulaciones.
