Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Sweeney Todd is based on the 19th century melodrama about a London criminal. Todd is sort of portrayed as a noble figure driven to crime when Judge Turpin takes his wife and child from him. He is unjustly imprisoned and vows revenge not only to the judge, but also to all the people of London.

Every time she sang, I was hoping for those famous words. She was definitely a wonderful addition to the cast.
Overall, the cast made this a very interesting play. Each character added a unique quality to the play. Sweeney Todd--revenge and hatred; Mrs. Lovett--comedy and cleverness; Judge Turpin--evil; Anthony and Johanna (whom I didnít mention) --love. All of these characters combined formed a winning production of Sweeney Todd.
