We had a great time at the Sweeney Todd viewing party on Sunday 9/28. About 50 of us gathered to eat pie, drink Sweeney Toddys and watch Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel perform with the NY Philharmonic.
I still have lovely roses and leftover bourbon from the event. So let me know if you want to have a drink and talk shop.
Congrats to Colleen Moore, whose spinach pie won her a decanter and a month’s Lite Membership to Canvas Co/Work.
Thanks to Harold Godsoe for the photography!
Last spring Wait Don’t Leave producer Joanna Castle Miller was assistant producer for the New York Philharmonic’s production of Sweeney Todd. Now it’s airing on PBS as part of Live from Lincoln Center!
