Adrienne Leonard McDonald: Sweeney Todd with Angela Lansbury! She is amazing!
Garrett Canna: If we're talking about filmed stage shows, it's the Lansbury/Hearn Sweeney Todd hands down.

Captured live during the national tour of the Tony Award-winning Broadway production, the taping of Sweeney Todd features three of the original Broadway stars, including Angela Lansbury reprising her Tony-winning performance as Mrs. Lovett, Ken Jennings as Tobias and Edmund Lyndeck as Judge Turpin. Also featured are Tony Award winner George Hearn in the title role, Cris Groenendaal as Antony and Betsy Joslyn as Johanna.
