Has anyone heard this one yet? If the samples are to go by, it sounds like a disaster.

They're recording the current London production?

My basic thought is: Casting a tenor as Sweeney? What are they thinking?

The cast are just . . . boring. I don't know why anyone besides a Ball fan would pick this over the Highlights of the Original Broadway Cast (or the complete one).

I don't see anything wrong with Staunton's vocal performance on the recording. She handles the score just fine and brings a real sense of the character.
I'm never going to complain about another recording of this glorious music, to be honest.

I have just been listening to this recording only this morning and I enjoyed it. I do not feel the need to compare this recording to the others out there....but having seen this cast both at Chichester and now The Adelphi I am glad to have it as a reminder of what was a thrilling theatre experience.

Although I don't think it's awful to listen to, I by and large agree with this.
