A quick update
Having an excellent time in NYC.
No time to write.
But I've thrown up a slew of photos on Flickr for the moment.

Sweeny Todd was complex, even though it was stripped down Crioknight. Here's why: everyone was onstage all the time, actors in a scene talked facing the audience. These things combined made it a little tough to figure out who was talking (or singing) to each other.
Having actors play the score was a tremendous success I feel, but with the complexity of the material, the reworking of the songs and stripped away presentation - it just left me with an empty "Broadway" feeling.
I think if I saw a bunch of shows in my life, this production would be a welcome relief. As it stands, I probably should have seen Ave. Q.
And thanks AJ. Appreciate it (and I will agree that Crocs are completely ugly - but entirely selfish as they made every step in NYC (and there were many) comfortable and springy. ;-)

Awesome photos. You caught the plethora of people and sights down to a tee. Have fun in NYC. Your photos make me miss my former home.
Was Sweeny Todd that complex? I thought it was a standard play.
