All the bells and whistles come out tomorrow for the official press launch of an incredibly special production of Stephen Sondheim’s SWEENEY TODD at our Montecasino Theatre.

Maryanne Van Eyssen: Had a fabulous night at the theatre with my friendy !! Sweeney Todd was everything you want in theatre… Jhb people get yourself to this show!!

@Rene_Coetzee: Such a bloody fantastic show. Pun intended.
Drew Rienstra says: “SWEENEY TODD officially is in previews and I caught both performances today. Here’s what I saw:
Steven Stead’s roller-coaster production held me breathless from beginning to end: Roaring with laughter at Charon Williams-Ros’ spot-on tongue-in-cheek delivery of brilliant one-liners, captivated by Jonathan Roxmouth’s terrifying “Sweeney” in relentless pursuit of justice (his “Epiphany” ranks as one of my top ten theatre experiences ANYWHERE) and brought face-to-face with one of the strongest companies of actors I’ve seen..”
You are not going to want to miss it!
