SWEENEY TODD: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

"I will have vengenance.
I will have salvation.
(shouted) Who sir, you sir?
No one in the chair, come on! Come on!
Sweeney's waiting. I want you bleeders.
You sir - anybody.
Gentlemen don't be shy!"

Sweeney Todd
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Musical/Thriller
an original Stephen Sondheim's musical production
Opens on 31st January 2008 (Singapore)
Verdict
I was extremely lucky to be invited to view a special preview before the show actually opens tomorrow (Thursday 31st, 2008) in Singapore.
A truely remarkable piece of theatre made into a dark motion picture masterpiece by Mr. Tim Burton. Johnny Depp has once again impressed audiences and fans with his excellent acting finesse as well as singing in theatre! In the movie, you will also see performances by Alan Rickman who played "Professor Snape" in "Harry Potter" series, as "Judge Turpin"; as well as Timothy Spall who played "Scabbers/Peter Pettigrew" in "Harry Potter" series, as "Beadle Bamford". If you like "Phantom of the Opera" (Movie version), you will love "Sweeney Todd". If you love Johnny Depp, then you must not miss "Sweeney Todd"!
5/5 Stars by me!
