I have to say that this is one of my favorite musicals. Sondheim's witty lyrics, gorgeous musical arrangements, and perceptive exposure of human natures both innocent and corrupt are all on display in Sweeney. Of four productions I have seen of Sweeney Todd, including the...More

Asheville Community Theatre is an awesome venue. I am so excited to see the renovations coming soon. Sweeney Todd was fabulous. Jerry Crouch, his actors and crew put on an amazing show. Bravo!!!

Every play that I see at ACT I feel that I am watching an Off Broadway production. Most of the actors are local and make us proud. Thanks to the Directors and the Actors for making Asheville a better place to enjoy the Arts.

I went with three friends to the matinee, we all agreed it was a stellar. It had every thing, interesting set, customs with creative detail and the voices were divine. Thank you all for a rare treat.

Saw Sweeney Todd on 10-15-16 and throughly enjoyed the show. The cast is great, the singing is wonderful and the set with the barber's chair is amazing. If you can, see it before this show closes on October 30.

Asheville Community Theatre's production of Sweeney Todd was superb! Excellent cast, great production; vocalists were amazing... Thank you for a wonderful afternoon! This was right up there with ACT's production of Spamalot (another favorite). :)
