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
