Interesting New York Times article about a new revival of what may be my favorite musical, Sweeny Todd, on Broadway. In this production, the entire action takes place inside an asylum, and the actors are also the orchestra. When I first heard about this production, it sounded gimmicky, but the more I read about it the more I wish I could be in New York to see it.
So what else have I read about it? Very little: Arthur Silber’s excellent post about the production at his new blog Once Upon A Time, and the Times review (not the same as the other Times article linked), which is what could fairly be called a rave.
