Audience Reviews for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Note that this is a play, not a movie, so if you're looking for a film, this isn't. Because this production was filmed at the beginning of the '80s, the film and sound quality are good, but they're not great. Still, it's much of the original cast, and Angela Lansbury alone makes this worth watching. This has been called Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece, and I wouldn't disagree. For musicality, however, I'll take A Little Night Music, or even his integral part in West Side Story as evidence of his better work. There is nothing you'll hear here that you'll come away wanting to whistle or hum, I assure you.More
