Sweeney Todd starring 'Emma Thompson' at the London Coliseum

27 April 2015

Following critiically-acclaimed performances at New York's Lincoln Center earlier this year, Academy Award-winning actress Emma Thompson and International star Bryn Terfel reprised their roles as 'Mrs Lovett' and 'Sweeney Todd' in a concert staging of Stephen Sondheim's gloriously gruesome musical "Sweeney Todd". With just 13 performances between the 30th of March and the 12th of April, tickets sold like hot cakes and I was very excited to make my first trip to the Coliseum to see this fantastic piece of theatre. I had already heard from numerous sources that Emma Thompson "steals the show" and I wasn't remotely suprised that she proved me right on the night!

New York is addictive. When you're there it feels that you are part of something but you haven’t quite worked out what it is.
