Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Tooting Arts Club’s immersive, eight-actor petit guignol version of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s killer-cannibal musical cuts a fine figure with a mostly new cast. As before, some of the razor-sharp score benefits from this intimate staging on a set that replicates a London pie shop—you can hear all the lyrics, for example, when Johanna sings "Green Finch and Linnet Bird"—while some numbers are necessarily truncated, such as the Act II opener, "God, That's Good!" Thom Sesma and Sally Ann Triplett currently play the leading roles. Read the full original review.
