ARE YOU KIDDING! omg yes. I had the opportunity to participate in a production of this...I mean come on...Murder, rape, cannabalism and a sprinkle of child molestation? Its a great show! Who WOULDN'T want to see it? and they're keeping it true to sondheims music.....yay for me.......and to top it all off......ALAN BLOODY RICKMAN as the creepy corrupt rapist/child molesting judge. He's so damn fine. *sighs happily* I am counting down the days to my midnight showing!
The A.C.T. just did it's big summer production of this... it's so now that i am surprised it didnt make a big screen debut till now. murdering singing barbers for meat pies makes great entertainment.
this actually always reminds me of angela lansbury, i remember watching her in her Tony award winning performance role of Mrs Lovett on PBS, a few years after the musical first debuted on Broadway. we had it on taped on Beta.
i have yet to see a better rendition of this role, and i doubt i ever will.
