“Sweeney Todd” at Curtain Call
By Tom Nissley
An absolutely magnificent production of "Sweeney Todd" is playing at Curtain Call, in the Kweskin Theater 1349 Newfield Avenue in Stamford. You'll find the quality of this show way, way, above the standards of regional theatre. This is Curtain Call at its best. Sondheim's music is so intricate, and this cast sings it precisely and beautifully. You'll be held taught in moments of tension and then totally blown away time and again. If you miss it, you'll have missed a great production and a very good show!
