"A razor-sharp production... A cut above the rest"
Broadway Baby *****

"All five actors shone brightly with compelling portrayals and a radiant rapport... with fantastically designed costumes, superbly grisly make up and what I hope was only authentic-looking fake blood... immensely enjoyable"
Three Weeks *****

" Fact: there has never been a more inventive, clever and creepy adaptation of Sweeney Todd before... There is nothing to fault, and far too much to praise, 'Sweeney Todd: His Life, Times and Execution!' is, without a doubt, the best show this year"
Hairline *****

"He's the Sorceror's Apprentice with razor blades and the sweetest Todd ever to cut a cheek.... A treat to be relished. I absolutely loved it"
