Sweeney Todd (Original Cast)


"A string of unforgettable moments. That factory whistle, the set, Sondheim's unbelievable score, Angela and Len coming up from the ground, the glorious orchestra, those strings!, the powerful singing of the ensemble (those high Sweeeeeeneeeeeeeys!), the door slam. The audience on its feet, on cue! It was groundbreaking, overwhelming and I had a moment with Leonard Bernstein in the lobby. He was emptying his pipe in an ashtray. I said, 'Great, huh?' He said, 'I'm jealous.'"
