sweeneytodd.jpgWho knew Kevin Smith was such a musical theater nerd? (Well, anyone who saw Jersey Girl, I guess, but let's not beat that dead horse.) In his latest blog entry, he describes taking his wife to see Broadway's latest "reimagining" of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. "Maybe I’m revealing myself as a traditionalist, so mired in memory that he’s closed-minded to new ideas," writes the man who cast Alanis Morrisette as God, "but [John] Doyle’s vision of Todd wasn’t my cup of tea." He goes on to provide a studied-sounding explanation of exactly what doesn't work in the new production. But don't worry, boys – he wraps it all up by calling himself gay. The nerd world order remains unchanged.
