So Sweeney Todd, Hannibal Lector, and Titus Andronicus all walk into a bar.
Okay, so starting a review with a joke might not be the best idea. But never the less, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is considered the first “Musical thriller.” It is one of composer Stephen Sondheim’s most well-known pieces of music and has won a ton of awards and there are productions and tours everywhere…you get the drill. It is personally one of my favorite musicals (in the top ten) and like Phantom I was hesitant to review this film, but gathered my courage and went ahead. The film...

Wait! Don't you go, don't you hurry. I almost didn't see you come, can'tcha sit, sit you down SIT! All I meant is that the customers keep coming in, did you come here for a pie, sir? Do forgive me if this place is such a mess. But you can't imagine all the stress!
All the people crowding in, I just have no time, sir! And there's always someone wanting some more pies! Right you are sir, would you like the gin with some more ice?
Mind you I can hardly blame them. There are probably the best pies in London! I know why everybody loves them, I know it, I make them. And good? Yes! The...
I was in fourth grade and my best friend came to school and said,
"My brother was watching this movie called Sweeney Todd and it has Johnny Depp in it."
so of course, I got so excited because even then I loved Johnny Depp. She came over after school and showed me By The Sea on Youtube.
I instantly fell in love. We spent the whole afternoon listening to Sweeney Todd songs and from then on, we dreamed about seeing it once we were old enough (we thought it was PG-13 not R).
We didn't see it until we were in seventh grade, but it was AWESOME! She got it for me on DVD and...
This is the official Sweeney Todd prayer, yeah I was really bored.
Our father who art in Fleet street,
Hallowed be thy name,
Thy revenge will come,
on earth as it is in London,
give us our daily shavings,
and forgive us our appetite,
as we forgive those who has a bigger appetite,
Save us from Judge Turpin,
and deliver us from all meat pies,
For Sweeney Todd, Mrs Lovett, Tobias now and forever
You've stolen whatever I've ever been.
You're the King of crime and I'll never be your Queen.
Now it's too late again.
Trust is never to regain.
I conceed, my love is still there.
About revenge only I too came to care.
"We all deserve to die?", don't we?
So why would feelings change so suddenly?
Even you, even I.
Then, I suspect another lie.
Come and hurt me, my dear.
There's no one to protect me here.
I'm not afraid of you anymore.
This is for anyone who plans on cosplaying from Sweeney Todd.
This particular costume breakdown is for the Demon Barber himself.
I have been cosplaying Sweeney Todd for 3 years now, and have put in a great deal of time researching and looking at pictures of the Sweeney Todd costume. So I thought I would share a bit of what I know.
First we will start out with general items, before I get into smaller details. As you will see in the picture next to this paragraph, you will notice some key items that Sweeney Todd has. If you are going to put together a Sweeney...
First of all:
Enough of all this blaming judge Turpin on every single bad thing that ever happened!
The man has become something of the big bad wolf around here, the worlds biggest scapegoat!
I know, i know. He desired a pretty woman, used his authority to falsley imprisoned her husband to get him out of the way, and than assaulted her in a room fool of other rich people that found the whole thing to be a great big laugh.
I am not at all saying that what he did was not wrong, i'd be a complete fool to ever think such a thing, nor am i justifying his actions in...
Went to see Sweeney last week and was blown away. I wanted to know the song list as I didn't find a programme and I found this this Sweeney info site with a great synopsis and song list! Enjoy fellow Sweenies! :)
