- 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?

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.)
