Entertaining, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if Great story, great talent. Amazing music. Patti at her best.

Don't see it if minimalist staging didn't work well in this production.Confusing. The playing of instruments added distraction without increasing creativity

Ambitious, Confusing

See it if You know Sweeney very well.

Don't see it if you actually need to understand the story. Because it is not very clear story telling.

Great staging, Must see, Riveting, Intense, Loud

See it if you are interested in seeing classic shows performed in a nontradition, yet very appealing/professional, way.

Don't see it if you have a fear of being a part of the action (though this is only for certain seats) or you have sensitive ears.
