Sweeney Todd: "A Little Priest," Stage Version

Here's a performance of "A Little Priest" that's action-based, rather than... um... "mood"-based.

The thing to watch with this performance is the way Mrs. Lovett reacts to Sweeney. You can see what she wants, when she gets it, when it is taken from her, and what she does to get it back.

I own this DVD and watch it regularly.

I also saw Miss Patti on Broadway doing this very song with Michael Cerveris. It was great on stage too! Especially with her holding a tuba! :-p
