I think Mrs L should be an equal of ST..maybe even more Machiavellian..I thought the poisoning-in-the-prison,was an interesting scenario too,gemini..that Mrs L cheats death,via Sweeney's hands and takes her own route.. :cool:

I've wondered what Johnny and Freddie were talking about in that get together in the pizza place,in New York ?, a little while ago...I always thought it was about a possible film role..Apparently Cyndi Lauper has auditioned for Tim.This was prior to Helena being cast.. http://filmexperience.blogspot...

R rating for Sweeney Todd?

Emma has posted an interesting comment from Tim about Johnny simging and how excited he is with the project http://www.johnnydepp-zone.com/boards/viewtopic.php?t=30166 ..Do you think he's joking or he means it..or is he just saying that this is not going to be a light and fluffy musical.?.

Very interesting,GG. :capnjack: Someone was pulling the census taker's leg...Probably the census taker tracked him down at the pub..But there's some weird names in those census records...due to illiteracy on both sides :capnjack:

Before his death, ST is said to have felt some guilt.Haining sayse that says a gaoler in Newgate Prison claimed that ST had awoken from a nightmare and told him that he had been haunted all night by the faces of his victims 'a sailor,a quaker and a hundred others'..So maybe a smidgin of remorse :-O

I'm not surprised that some of the sources couldn't be located.One source he said,was really hard to get hold of and there aren't many copies extant..Convenient,one might say.. :capnjack: He still manages to quote some interesting statistics..for example,that ST's premises were crammed with clothes ...

Haining paints a horrific picture of Fleet street in the 18th century..a real den of iniquity.There was a concentration of the criminal fraternity there,firmly entrenched in their ''evil and unsanitary hideouts..Haining says that for many years there was a Waxworks at 189 Fleet Street,hard by ST'S s...

Haining says that Mrs L commited suicide in prison,after she had made a full confession,but before she was due to face Sweeney in court..It was suicide by poison,which was smuggled in to her..Is this what happens to her in the Sondheim musical?
