BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - Angela Lansbury (Actor), George Hearn (Actor) - Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street Broadway Version - Broadway Musicals DVD - Times are hard in 1846 London and one must make do. So Nellie Lovett adds something extra to the meat pies she peddles on Fleet Street. The secret ingredient: freshly murdered victims of her partner in crime, barber Sweeney Todd. Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim refashions a macabre tale into a musical masterwork in this dazzling performance of the 1979 Broadway hit originally staged by Harold Prince. In her Tony-winning role (one of eight the show earned, including Best Musical), Angela Lansbury plays Nellie. George Hearn turns his stage role of twisted Sweeney into an Emmy-winning triumph. The score coils around itself in ever-tightening spirals. The lines ripple with black humor and madness. Enter Sweeney's tonsorial parlor. Attend the tale. I was lucky enough to SEE this version of SWEENEY live when it was videod in Los Angeles (they had to apologize for the brash lighting necessary for the video taping.). Recordings of live Broadway quality performances are rare enough, but this is one of the TRUE GEMS. Fabulous performances, great story and what fulfilling music. If you love either Broadway or Sondheim, or what to know what the BEST is like, this is your DVD. HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION Those who know and love SWEENEY TODD can now use the concert version DVD for a frisbee. This is the REAL Sweeney Todd, the original (and finest) Mrs. Lovett, the incredible Angela Lansbury, and the equally wonderful George Hearn in his prime as a magnificent demon barber of Fleet Street. This is Sondheim's masterpiece as brilliantly staged by Harold Prince, and meticulously directed for television by Terry Hughes. Never before had Broadway magic been so well preserved for the ages as this production was in 1982 (Ironically, it was videod while the touring production was in Los Angeles.).
