Sweeney Todd - 2014 Lincoln Center

Featuring: Bryn Terfel, Emma Thompson, Philip Quast, Audra McDonald, Christian Borle, Kyle Brenn, and Erin Mackey

I was fully expecting another stiff concert version of an amazing Sondheim score. Watch to find yourself pleasantly surprised! It’s the perfect interpretation for this musical.

EDIT: Original video removed by youtube. Here’s a fuzzier version I found. Keep an eye on PBS for a rerun of the full performance!

Ugh, are you exhausted from people arguing about the Into The Woods movie they haven’t seen yet based on a paraphrase of an article that mentioned some out of context, off-hand comments Sondheim made? I sure am.

So let’s detox with this hour-long documentary from 1990 focusing on Sondheim’s time as a visiting professor at Oxford and the Nation Theatre’s production of Sunday in the Park with George.
