LuPone & Cerveris to "keep living it"

Hat tip: Liz Smith

Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris will go on with their merrily gruesome pie-making through Thanksgiving in Broadway's delicious, dark, avant garde revival of "Sweeney Todd" -- directed by John Doyle. The show, which opened last fall, was nominated for six Tonys, including LuPone for Best Actress in a Musical. She didn't win, but with this long run, she's having the last laugh. And when she laughs as Mrs. Lovett... well, go see for yourself, she's sensational.

By Thanksgiving, the show will have been up for 13 months. . . While it is by no means a Wicked-sized smash--discounted tickets are available just about every day at TKTS--it's been packed the 4 times I've seen it. I think once more should do it. Unless it doesn't. (Why are you looking at me like that?)
