AIR DATE: January 24, 2013

Sweeney Todd remains a popular dark character in film and stage. It received so much praise when performed at the Onyx Theater that the directors are bringing it back for a limited run. We're joined by artistic director Brandon Burk about people's fascination with a murdering barber.

Burk: "There's no splash zone, you don't need to bring your raincoat, but yes, we use blood on stage."
 
 
 
Still from Sweeney Todd, now playing at the Onyx Theater.

 

"I wasn't really looking for a social message ... for me, every character in this story is a tragedy."

Burk: "Everybody has a little bit of a dark side."
