Buzz Mag - Sweeney Todd Review

"As for the show’s leads, Becca Barrett as Mrs Lovett and Michael Robert Lowe as Sweeney Todd, they both commanded the show was immense power and ease. Barrett particularly shines in the number The Worst Pies in London which makes Stephen Sondheim’s fast-paced orchestration seem a breeze...The chemistry between [Lovett and Sweeney], which is crucial to this show, was electric and intense."

Arts Scene in Wales - Sweeney Todd Review

"Add the delectably drawn Mrs Lovett by mezzo-soprano Becca Barrett, as irresistible and tantalising as her grisly meat pies, and we were given a dastardly duo that had us completely gripped for every moment...This Mrs Lovett was amoral, amusing and alluring, coping admirably with the key and metre changes through her opening first number. Her performance of the rather an irresistibly desperate By The Sea was funny yet not over-the-top in a song that encapsulates all of her attributes; a warming and chilling characterisation in equal measure."
