Demon Barber Media Roundup

Let's see what everyone else thought. I will include amusing headlines playing off the plot.
  • Joshua Kosman, Chron. "S.F. Opera delivers a 'Sweeney Todd' that's a cut above." Note the less-amusing URL when you click through.
  • Greg Freed, Parterre Box. "Leave It to Cleaver."
  • Steven Winn, SFCV. "SF Opera Attends to Sweeney Todd with a Vengeance."
  • Opera Tattle, overwhelmed by the firehose of words, reports that meat pies were served in the press room. Did anyone on the SFO staff lose a cat recently?
  • SF Mike, SF Civic Center
  • Lisa Hirsch, here.
Joshua's review reminds me that I thought the first act sagged at the beginning, then picked up in whatever the last number or two were ("A Little Priest," most likely.)
