Format: Paperback
Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd makes sure that the man will rank with the best musical theater composers as well as the best classical composers. His eclectic, thrilling score for Sweeney Todd includes patter songs for the wonderful Mrs. Lovett, incredible arias for Sweeney Todd and romantic ballads for the young lovers. Although it is priced at $100.00, it is nearly 400 pages long and includes every note of music in the show as well as plently of dialouge that is incoroporated into musical scenes.

Format: Hardcover
"Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street: A Musical Thriller" is perhaps the most intense dark comedy ever. The musical is not intended for those of the weak at heart. The musical is about a mad Barber who wants nothing but revenge on the judge who unjustly transported him to a prison in Australia. Having lost his first chance at the Judge, he vows to murder any one who is a costomer. The Musical shows Sondheims power when it comes to moving music. This musical touches and dares to rattle the very foundation of society as the story becomes an example of how men do not kill because they want to, men becomes killers because they are programed to. The lyrics are incredeble and very realistic... I dare even say, as I sit here writing this, I can still hear the acute shrilling of the factory whistle and from a distance Sweeney inviting me to sit on his chair.

The $100 price tag is well worth the money to obtain this score for the original Broadway production. Although the movie version will stand alone on it's own merits, and the last New York revival went to some strange lengths to rework the staging for it's own ends, it is always best to see the original form. Having performed the role of Sweeney twice, myself, it is great to be able to own my own version of the score!

I though this would be a book version of the musical, but instead it is just the script of the musical.

This script isn't what the official MTI script uses. Some of the words are different. It's nice if you're following along with the 1983 DVD of Angela Lansbury and George Hearn.

While I do like this book and will keep it, it's not what I thought it was when I ordered it. This is not the sheet music for Sweeney Todd, it is the dialogue and lyrics only.

Format: Paperback
This show is not for all tastes. If you are a fan of Stephen Sondheim...or even if you are not you will find this show moves you and makes you feel for the man society usually portrays as the villain through the media. This is a script to a show about a barber who was exiled to Australia by a Judge and his Beadle and who returns to take his revenge. The original show starred the amazing Len Cariou and the always fabulous Angela Lansbury. This is not your "Sound of Music" and other very happy musicals. This is very mature but awesome and intelligent...and FEELING.

Format: Paperback
It was so wonderful to buy this book and to have the entirity of the musical right at my finger tips word for word. It's truly one of the best musicals ever concocted and Sondheim is a genius. I reccomend this to everyone whose a fan of the show.. if you're not familiar with the show, it might seem a little strange to you..
