Last weekend, my company opened Sondheim's #masterpiece Sweeney Todd. It's been so much fun to to spend the last few weeks deep inside this story and its lurid literary history! #Movember #seemoretheatre #seemoreopera

I think everyone has their own interpretations of the #whiterabbit but to me, he is a lackey. He lives a pompous, privileged life and justifies poor actions as loyalty to his master. He's better than you and isn't afraid to let you know it but when "master" says so, he will kneel. There is a heart there somewhere....deep, deep, DEEP down but you only see tiny glimpses

Just screams Beadle Bamford, doesn't it?

Day 7 - #alittlepriest #musicalnewyear

MRS. LOVETT:
Seems a downright shame...
TODD: Shame?
LOVETT:
Seems an awful waste...
Such a nice, plump frame
Wot's 'is name has...
Had...
Has!
Nor it can't be traced...
Bus'ness needs a lift,
Debts to be erased...
Think of it as thrift,
As a gift,
If you get my drift!
No?
Seems an awful waste...
I mean, with the price of meat
What it is,
When you get it,
If you get it...
Hah!

Mid-week theatre to kick off a month of it! This spooky campfire tale rendition was done in a recreation of a London pie shop and the ambiance played a huge part. Norm Lewis was an amazing Sweeney Todd. Perfect chills to cut through the summer. Also, there was pie.

rubyslippersreads I hope it wasn't "the worst pie in London." ? 2y
