Never Forget. Never Forgive.

Filming has been completed on Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd which is one of my favorite musicals. There is no way it could be more riveting than the pared down arrangement we were lucky to see on Broadway a couple of years ago in which the cast doubled as the orchestra. When Patti Lupone wasn't singing, she was playing the tuba or striking a triangle dangled from the yarn she was knitting into a red scarf. But I still can't wait to see what Tim Burton does with Stephen Sondheim's deliciously dark and twisted story. The film cast sounds fun and includes Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd), Helena Bonham Carter (Mrs. Lovett), Alan Rickman (Judge Turpin), and Sacha Baron Cohen (Signor Pirelli).
