Sondheim's masterpiece gets excellent treatment here. This is a live concert performance, with the singers in costume. They move through, around and above the orchestra on catwalks. The leads Patti Lupone and George Hearn could hardly be bettered. They have just the right voices, looks and personalities for their roles. All the other singers do very well, I won't bother detailing. The DVD has interviews with some of the singers, and the booklet has an essay about the story and the musical. The only way this show could have been improved is if it was fully staged, not just a concert. Sondheim comes on for a bow at the end. I think this is Sondheim's best work, though I find it has two big problems: considering the darkness of the plot it has too much comedy, and I'd like Sweeney and his daughter to sing a duet. As far as I know this is the only live performance of any musical on DVD, so don't miss it.
