Ambitious, Great singing, Entertaining, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you are a Sweeney fan and don't need props or scenery to appreciate the songs and story, which are very well performed.

Don't see it if you are looking for a truly professional theater.

Great singing, Ambitious

See it if You have to love the show and the music. Great singing but no sets or choreography, More like a cabaret performance of the score.

Don't see it if U can't get there early and grab a front row seat. Rows of chairs w/NO sightlines. And much of the action takes place off the elevated stage

February 13th, 2017

"Every song is memorable, every actor significant and how good the collaborative effort to make this one freak of a musical is proven by how devastated you are in the show's final moments. All of this comes together beautifully in Theater2020's production...'Sweeney' takes perfect form in this production that does such a beautiful story proud...I cannot say enough good things about how talented this cast is; it was almost unexpected."

"See and hear this glorious production before it closes. Theater 2020's cast of 15, under sly and stern direction of Judith Jarosz, goes deep, dark, and downright operatic to pump Wheeler's ghoulish book with enough steam (and steampunk) to speed everyone toward their very sticky destinies...As the eponymous Todd, the powerful David Fuller conjures Sondheim's relentless musical pace, and admirably anchors the company."
