This commercial brings back memories of growing up right outside of New York City. Almost daily I would be his by commercials for Broadway musicals like Cats or Annie and it piqued my interest in a attending a music. When I finally did get to see one I was not disappointed.
This Sweeney Todd commercial is kind of creepy, which makes a lot of sense and would have been a lot for my young brain to process. Although I would not have known Angela Lansbury from her work in “Murder, She Wrote”, which is still years away, I would have known her from the Disney classic, “Bednobs and Broomsticks”.
This commercial is from the original run of Sweeney Todd, which has gone on to be a powerhouse — Playing around the world pretty much non-stop since its debut.
