Introduction by Christopher Bond
“Mr. Sondheim fearlessly explores psychic caverns where civilized people are not dying to go ... A naked Sweeney Todd stands revealed as a musical of naked rage, chewing up everyone in its path as it spits out blood and tears.” – Frank Rich, The New York Times • “A work of such scope and such daring that it dwarfs every other Broadway musical that even attempts to invite comparison.” – Rex Reed, New York Daily News
