So, last Saturday I'm going through the newspaper wondering what movie to catch, when I come upon the story about Burroughs High School students performing “Sweeney Todd.” A high school production of “Sweeney Todd”? This I have to see. Since my children graduated from Burroughs, I was familiar with the school's ambitious pop shows, but even so this production was extraordinary. To see kids tackle a property as complicated and adult as “Sweeney Todd” and do so well by it is a thrill.
