A thrilling night at the theatre- it will leave you mesmerised long after you have left your seat.Adriaan Roets, The Citizen
This production brilliantly evokes a noir graphic novel in its staging, acting and atmosphere. It's a hair-raising, flesh-crawling and blood-curdling banquet of thrills and chills.Christina Kennedy, Business day
A superb, unforgettable production, seamlessly exploring the mental ambiguities of characters as well as the darkness of the human soul. It is moody, darkly amusing and hypnotising.Leon van Nierop, Artslink
Drenched in blood and delicious in its unrelenting dark humour, Steven Stead’s production of Sweeney Todd, the Sondheim classic that blends some of the finest traditions in vocal music, is a real achievement.Robyn Sassen, My View
