Have seen a few productions at the Union and they have always been of a high standard, and Sweeney Todd is no exception. This production is a fabulously delicious telling of the story and executes the dark humour very well. Not to be missed! - Julia

After great productions of The Pyjama Game and The Mikado, the Union Theatre now give us a Sweeny Todd which looks like it was created for this space. I saw the first outing on the London fringe of the Christopher Bond play which inspired Sondheim and it seems so appropriate that his musical comes back to the London froinge after the West End, Broadway, concert halls and opera companies. From the terrifc candlelit opening, the use of the tiny space is terrific. I've seen better sung productions, spectacular designs and star leads, but this is a great staging of a great show and another reason to put the Union on your list of regular haunts. - Gareth James

Saw the show last week and it was an absolute joy. The cast are truly fabulous. It's a very hands-on experience seeing it in such a small venue, but one that must definitely be experienced. - Louise Hunt
