Sweeney Todd


Center Daily Times

“Bravo, Pennsylvania Center Stage. The production of 'Sweeney Todd', the Stephen Sondheim musical, is triumphant—nearly perfect in every way. The only things missing from this Broadway-quality performance are the sounds of car horns blasting, sirens screaming and the 7th Avenue subway rumbling underneath. Audiences lucky enough to catch this production will get to see American musical theater as it should be done—first-rate direction, powerful performances and beautifully designed visual elements. Director Richard Stafford has mounted a superb production. The staging flows effortlessly throughout the evening. Stafford squeezes every ounce of start theatricality from each moment.”
