Sweeney Todd Question #25 ~ Sweeney in Your Town?

Would you go see Sweeney Todd if it was playing your town?

Actually the play, stipje. I think we will all be at the movie opening day!

We'll, I'd like to see the play, but little chance it'll show here :eyebrow:

I will if the most recent Broadway version comes to town. I watched the clip of that one, and it really appealed to me. :applause:

Yes, we go to all the big musicals that come to our area and wouldn't want to miss one that is so utterly bizarre :yuck2:, yet highly acclaimed.

You know DITHOTbaba, before reading the play and watching the musical on DVD, I would have said no, but now I think I would really consider going to see it.

Yes. I would try hard to go and see the play in any version. Just once though, because I know Johnny is attempting to make the movie. It could show up here, but it's a bit of a trek into the downtown area from here.

I don't think I would, but it would depend on how close and how costly it was.

Some community group about an hour away from me was doing Saroyan's "The Time of Your Life" last month, and I decided not to go.

Yes, this is often a problem, the cost.

Well, I hate to sound like a dead beat, but since I have already read two books and bought one DVD of the play, and I am planning on seeing Johnny's movie, thats about enough spent on one story. I would have to say no. If any version gets to television, I would watch it now that I have some knowledge and can make some comparisons.
