Rave Review Alert on an Outstanding Sweeny Todd.


Sweeny ToddWe have just returned from a performance of the Durban production of the musical Sweeny Todd.  I will need some time to form up and drill a platoon of suitable superlatives before I write the review proper, but let it be mentioned that the ovation was more a case of everyone instantly leaping to their feet and yelling rather than merely standing up and applauding.

I recall a friend – with the means – who travelled to London from Durban for a weekend, just to see the original Phantom production.  What we have just seen would justify the same exercise in reverse.

Watch this space.

    It’s good to read that Durbs still gets some good shows for the public to attend.
