Rated 4.0

Sweeney Todd is a lively nightmarish comedy that may give viewers a taste for blood and an appetite for fresh—or flesh—meat pies. Lauren Ettensohn (Mrs. Lovett) carries the show with her haunting voice and beguiling expressions, and Owen Jones (Tobias Ragg) is a notable young performer with plenty of potential. TMO
