Sweeney Todd

I love this musical! It is fantastically gothic and dark but also so human. It is a great example of the human experience. There is hope and love and death and despair. The songs are fantastically written. They are witty but some at the same time are so serious and emotional. The movie of the musical stars Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter and has that perfect Tim Burton style to it. Sweeney Todd is a barber who has returned to London after traveling the world and plots revenge against the judge who took his wife and child from him. Sweeney goes into a downward spiral and starts killing almost all of his customers who come for a shave and, with the help of Mrs. Lovett, disposes of the bodies in a most peculiar way. I can rant and rave all day about everything I love about this musical but the best way to express my love of it is to provide a clip of it. This video belong is not mine and I do not claim it to be mine. I encourage you to watch the other videos if you like this one.
