Sweeney. Freaking. Todd.
What more can I really say? I went and saw it last night and it was as much a stunner (maybe more) as it was in ‘05 when Saul and I went to the Broadway production.
The cast was spot on with the music, delivered their lines with the right play and gravitas...ugh. It was really art. True and good.
I’m still humming ‘Johanna’ this morning. She was a cutie, for sure. Her face was a bit round for me, but there was a sweetness to it as well. Maybe it’s just the innocence of the role coming through, but the whole show was fantastic.
I’m glad I went to the theater last night. It was a bit of a walk, but nothing terrible. The walk home in the dark was a bit more of an ear perker, given my prey. Stopped off at the Buddha Bar near here. Not a bad atmosphere, but nothing that screamed ‘vampire hunting ground!’ either. I wasn’t out to hunt, anyway, so I’m not too torn up over it.
I liked tonight. It was good to just explore, get to know the city, relax, enjoy myself. I’m not going to get too wound up over this hunt and start obsessing. I know Brandy’s concerned about that, and I can’t blame her. Saul deserves better and he deserved someone coming after Moira sooner. It’s easy to see why someone could get all wound up, but that’s a sure fire way to go cray-cray and I’m not doing that.
If anything, I needed this vacation. Some me time away from the day to day SAM stuff, explore a city instead of ghost in and out, try and belong...it’s refreshing.
I think I’ll make a habit of exploring more. Should also figure in the magical side as well, and not just the muggle stuff. Time to get that passport stamped, then, and see what the wizarding side is up to. Maybe they’re not as tightly wound as the no-maj’s are.
