    I Understand You, Mrs. Lovett

     I actually identify with Mrs. Lovett more so than any other fictious character I've ever encountered... Sounds psycho (I know) but it adds a whole new level to this movie for me.     PS: I am talking about the movie version here. Honestly I haven't seen the...

    I do a lot of long, hard hours at the job I

    work. Singing the song 'Epiphany' helps get me through the days and nights. "There's a hole in the world like a great black pit And it's filled with people who are filled with sh!t And the vermin of the world inhabit it." That just about sums up my workplace at times.

    Sweeney, Tea And Me

    I first discovered Sweeney Todd on radio in the early eighties, one Saturday night when I was all by myself studying in my office on the geology floor of the Huggins Science building at Acadia University. I was so intrigued with this darkly funny musical that I put down my books...

    Sweeney Todd <3

    Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street was the most amazing movie I have ever seen in my life. I have watched it over and over until I could recite the whole movie by heart, and yet I still continue to watch it. The music and overall theme is just spectacular; I have...

    Attend The Tale Of Sweeney Todd

    I saw a stage production of Sweeney Todd at 15. I was severely freaked out by it at first but then I realized how awesome it was. I realized how brilliant the music and lyrics are, and despite the fact that it's really really morbid it's also hilarious. Mrs. Lovett is hysterical...

    I Played The Music For My College

    My first semester of college this was the production the drama department was doing. I have always played for musicals, since they are the greatest challenge for me musically, and are always such a blast. I have played the clarinet for many musicals, and have doubled on the sax...

    And I Hate Violent Movies, Which Shows St Was Incredible

    Last year, a bunch of my friends wanted to see "Sweeney Todd" in the theater. I never even heard of it, so I looked up the trailer on YouTube and it looked pretty neat. Plus, I love Harry Potter, so the presence of Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall, and Helena Bonham Carter...

    The Real Sweeney Todd.

    I love Sweeney Todd,but the real Sweeney Todd,the stage musical.Ive no doubts that the movie is great but I dont think it can come near the original Stephen Sondheim musical. Your sitting in a darkend theatre,the stage lighting comes on and you see the minimalist set design...

    I have never seen the play, but I have seen the movie with Johnny Depp and he is amazing in this movie. The acting is very believable. I was blown away. The blood spill did not really bother me, I thought of it as red paint from a paint can. All of the songs stick into my...
