Over the past few days the lovely Hendrix Players have been putting on performances of Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. This is a musical with loads of wonderful songs depicting a dark story. Johnny Depp was Sweeney Todd in the Tim Burton version of the play. The music in the play emphasizes a variety of string instruments. Every note is dramatic and full of emotion. Sweeney Todd is indeed the demon barber of Fleet Street, and the music within this play is indeed dramatic enough to claim the story of a demon barber.
Another musical that, to me, is also a joy to watch around Halloween/during the post-Halloween week, is Rocky Horror Picture Show. This movie has become a cult classic with songs that are just absolutely addicting. Whether or not if you’ve seen Rocky Horror, you have probably at least heard of songs like “Time Warp” and “Dammnit Janet.” The music from this musical, as well as the ever-confusing plot, make it a classic that I believe everyone should experience just once. Musical music is always enjoyable and you guys should check out both Sweeney Todd and Rocky Horror!
