Sweeney!

Sunday, March 13, 2005

I heard they're making a movie version of "Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street", a musical by Stephen Sondheim. WOW! Cool! And it's going to be direcetd by Sam Mendes ("American Beauty", London/NYC revival of "Cabaret")!!! COOL! This is one of my all-time favorite musicals. It's dark theme aside, it's a materpiece of lyrical complexity, original melody and good storytelling. Fabulous!

Sadly, Russell Crowe has supposedly been cast as Sweeney... oh well. Imelda Staunton has been supposedly cast as Mrs. Lovett, which is cool... wonder if she sings... wonder is HE sings... oh well...
