Imelda Staunton Is Mrs. Lovett In “Sweeney”

I had always liked Imelda Staunton, and then I saw her in the movieVera Drake“: suddenly I loved her. Now, she’s Mrs. Lovett in “Sweeney Todd,” which has just moved to the West End in London, co-starring Michael Ball. Of performing the show every night, the actress says: “Doing it is the most extraordinary thing. Because it’s like Shakespeare times 100 with singing. It’s that satisfying – and that demanding.”
