    A Musical You Don't Want to Miss...or Else!!

    I believe Sondheim is an absolute genius. The plot line is absolutely breathtaking and you find yourself lost in the story not wanting to put it down until you see whether or not Todd...well, read it for yourself, I know Todd wouldn't want me to give away the end.

    The Most Amazing Book Ever!!!!

    I love this book so much!!!! I have already read it 5 times and I plan on reading it again. It is a little different from the movie but it's okay because both are fabulous. You probably won't be able to tell the difference. Sondheim is an avsolute genious and it shows. The most amazing song ever, Johanna(reprise~with Sweeney and Antony) is in here!!!!! So if you liked the movie read this book because it's the original. If you haven't seen the movie you need to because my future husband, Johnny Depp, sings in it!!!! Also it has Sacha Boron Cohen(Borat) and Helena Bonham Carter(Corpse Bride, Harry Potter)who also sing. To make it better it is directed by Tim Burton(Edward Sissorhands, Nightmare before Christmas, Alice in wonerland). It is an amazing story about a demon barber who kills his customers anh with the help of Mrs. Lovett makes them in to meat pies. If you read this book, see the movie or bradway production you're be sure to be very careful when you go get a shave or eat a meat pie!!!!!!:)
