Over at The Rest Is Noise guest writer Justin Davidson writes that the new Broadway production of Sweeney Todd is out on CD. I’m still going back and forth on whether I want to purchase it, but I suspect I’ll give in and purchase it. I don’t have a clue what I’ll think of it. I’m picky about instrumentalists, and of course I’ve been skeptical of this show, but Terry Teachout thinks it’s great, and Justin Davidson doesn’t seem to think it’s a bad recording. Other people have said they love the show. I’m still skeptical, but that’s not atypical of yours truly. I know would prefer to have a DVD. I think I’d be less picky about the instrumentalists if I was watching as well as listening.
