I was thrilled when I saw the start of the episode. Pretty funny.

Incidentally, that's the second time I've seen/heard an Anthony who had a deeper voice than Sweeney.

I thought it was good. I enjoyed the cast performing the opening number in the office and freaking everyone out.

Someone on production really knew their Sweeney Todd. A nice detail I noticed was that during the curtain call Johanna was actually in her sailor costume.

Although I have never seen The Office, I saw that clip and I think I want to watch the Office. That was HYSTERICAL.

What I found interesting was that, with all the highly specific details hidden in the production, there was still an overture.

Do some versions of Sweeney HAVE an overture medley, or was it composed specifically for the show as a means of filling time in the episode?

I loved the episode. Andy as Anthony was excellent! :D

Maybe it was an inside joke to all of us in the musical theatre, pointing out that amateur groups do illegal stuff like that all the time?
