And thank goodness its in a real DVD cover not one of those awful cardboard ones that the original was released in. Ive held back hoping they would release it here in real packaging.
Great art work for the cover also.
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

There's seems to be a Sondheim DVD boom around the UK DVD release of Burton's Sweeney Todd. Not only do we get the Lansbury version finally in the UK but JOhn Doyle's Company is also being released in the UK, and at only 8.99 on play.com thats a bagain.

They've also decided to released a 4 disc Sondheim boxset that includes the Lapone/Hearn Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, Follies in Concert & Sunday. It does however seem to be missing Passion and the Sondheim anniversary concert that were in the US verison.

Has that DVD never been on release in the UK???
I've simply never bought it because i didn't want it in that snap-case.

The Lansbury version on Sweeney has never been released in the UK. Dress Circle have been selling it for ages but that was just the region one import

This is quite possibly the best news EVER! Both Sweeney and Company are at the top of my things to buy list. Cannot wait!

No I haven't! I've always wanted to, after seeing clips on Broadway: The American Musical, but have never gotten round to it. I might have to now!

I'm in the UK, and unfortunantly don't own a multi- region DVD player.
