Post Nudity in Sweeney Todd?
A professional theatre in Edmonton is doing Sweeney next season, and on the website, they advertise warnings for Mature Content, Violence, and Nudity. When in the world would there be nudity in Sweeney Todd?

Maybe in the rape scene? Or Mea Culpa?

"But there's no place like Calcutta!" But really Sweeney doesn't need nudity....I agree about it being unnecessary.

I also agree that it would be unnecessary.

Nudity could also be in the madhouse scene. Patients were often kept nude in these institutions.

Wherever it is, I'd be careful with that razor!!

well, IMO, they already fu*ked up Sweeney with the recent broadway revival, so let's hope they dont further make the show into a steaming pile of sh!t. :roll:
