tonight I have been in the Dundee REP Theatre where they showed the musical Sweeney Todd.
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street became quite famous due to Tim Burton's musical-movie with Johnny Depp. And the performance of the actors in theatre designed by Richard Murphy played and sang on a same high level. I was very impressed due the scene with the shaving duel with Pirelli. With the same elegance and speed David Birrell, who played Sweeney Todd, shaved his volunteer. The more industrial looking stage did not bother as well, because it played during the industrial revolution, so that was fine.
Beside the good play of the actors, the lightning was really good and you could every time feel the atmosphere of the scene. This all has been rounded off with live music from a small orchestra in the background!
Everyone who loved the film will do the same with the musical as well, and any other will be good entertained. And for a price of 8 Pound for almost three hours of high class entertainment, that's definitely cheap.
