From Broadway to DVD

From Broadway to DVD — The film adaptations of stage productions ”Sweeney Todd” and ”Sunday in the Park with George”

Posted on

Here are two great Broadway-to-disc picks:

Sweeney Todd
Before Angela Lansbury went all Jessica Fletcher on us, she won a 1979 Tony as the devious Mrs. Lovett. George Hearn is the Demon Barber.

Sunday in the Park with George
The 1985 Pulitzer-winning ode to painter Georges Seurat is a work of art. Don’t miss the commentary by Sondheim, director James Lapine, and stars Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters.
