HFCC Does Up 'Sweeny Todd' In Grand Style

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press and Guide May 1997

The Stephen Sondheim musical "Sweeney Todd" definitely could be classified as a scholar's choice of a show. This is one of the many reasons the play was appropriate for Henry Ford Community College to produce. Another reason is the college right now is the only local group which could give this play the presentation it should get .
