How do you feel about Emma Thompson making “the worst pies in London”?

If you reply “God thats Good!” then you are my kind of person and you are in the right spot.

What are you doing the evening of September, 29th?   If you’re not watching PBS then you are going to be missing out on seeing Emma Thompson as Mrs. Lovett, the amazing Bryn Terfel as Sweeney Todd himself, and even a surprise guest as the Old Woman!  This is a semi staged version that ran for a limited 13 show run with the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center in March of this year.
