Critic Reviews:

The satire is an undercurrent in a story that's ostensibly concerned with its overriding Grand Guignol revenger's tragedy.


To an unusual degree, "Sweeney Todd" works on a quasi-realistic level and not as a musical fantasy.


Sweeney Todd offers a protagonist so consumed with hatred he can only have a real relationship with his favourite razors (subject of the show’s big love song, My Friends) and a crass cook horribly in love with a man-monster who only notices her when she suggests cannibalism as a solution to his corpse-disposal problem.
