This weekend and next, I'm playing clarinets (bass, soprano, and sopranino) in the Metro Stage Company's production of Sweeney Todd. The production is excellent, the cast is spectactular, and even the orchestra is beautiful!

Tonight was opening night, and it went swimmingly, especially for an opening night. The remaining performances are the 17th, 23, and 24th at 8pm, an early Thursday show at 7:30pm on the 22nd, and 2pm matinee this Sunday (the 18th).

If you've never seen Sweeney, let me advise you that it's ... rather dark. Not exactly a Halloween show, but not far from it:

The rare instance of a musical thriller, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe!
