Oh, Sweeney...

... Todd, that is.

Kelsey and I have two anniversaries. One is our anniversary of being more than friends - the day we decided to take our relationship to the dating stage. That one is February 21. Our second anniversary is, of course, our wedding anniversary. That one is October 21. So, in case you hadn't guessed, we just celebrated our anniversary of being more than friends. And to celebrate in style, we went to our local community theater and saw one of my favorites - Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. It was fantastic! I loved it! I admit I had never seen the play before (other than church plays, this is the first play I've been to, in general); but I had seen the movie. It's definitely one of my favorite movies, and it's my favorite play, too. :^) Definitely an experience I'll never forget. Now I cannot wait to see another play - possibly this spring or summer. But I just know it won't be as good as Sweeney. :^)

How fun! Looking forward to hearing about more plays that the two of you enjoyed. I have not seen the movie. The one with Johnny Depp? I love musicals... you would recommend that one?

Sweeney Todd is the movie with Johnny Depp. I waited and waited for it to come to the movie theater here, and it never did. There were only so many copies, and the only theaters in Kansas to get them were in Kansas City. :^( So I had to wait for the DVD. But it was worth the wait. I loved it! I love musicals as well. I remember when I was little, my favorite movie was Annie. I would recommend Sweeney Todd, if you don't mind horror movies. A lot of people consider it bloody. The play's not, they used a red ribbon to signify blood. But the movie has more detail! What I love about the movie and the play is the moral - "revenge doesn't pay." But I won't give too much away. I would recommend it if you do not mind some blood in movies.
