Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Not for the faint of heart…and probably not for young children either. I’ve see the Johnny Depp movie and thought it was great! I enjoy some morbid stuff sometimes though. =)
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street tells the story of the obsessively vengeful barber Benjamin Barker and his twisted partnership with the outrageous Mrs. Lovett who together, devise a devilish plot to add a special ingredient to a recipe that has all of London dying for their pies. Sondheim’s gloriously gruesome musical combines melodrama and murder and features one of the most chilling, thrilling scores ever written for the stage.

Like I said before, I’m proud of my Jayhawks no matter what. They have, no question, had one of the hardest roads in the tournament so we gotta give credit where credit is due!
