Anyone in NYC who can get a ticket go - go -go.  Tomorrow, Fri, Sat. mat & evening.

 

Perfect cast, great performances, world class orchestra.

 

Bryn Terfel of the Met Opera was mesmerizing in the lead, and he used his amazing voice to tremendous emotional effect.   Emma Thompson (I didn't know she could sing) played Mrs. Lovett with great comedic flair and timing.  I could go on and on, but everyone was just terrific

 

The staging was clever and convincing, particularly with the given that the orchestra is also on stage.  

 

 

Stephen Sondheim was in the audience, and it went up on stage at the end to take a bow with the performers - It was such a great performance, he had to be pleased.

 

SPOILER ALERT - DON'T READ FURTHER IF YOU ARE GOING AND WANT A SURPRISE

 

 

 

 

 

In the program the person playing the Beggar Woman was listed as ?

 

Turned out "?"  was Audra McDonald

I sure hope so.  It's one of those rare things that I wish everyone could see.
