Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street 2012

Mrs Lovett in Ignatians Musical Society’s SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET (2012)

“Selwood’s tour-de-force as the needy and manipulative Mrs Lovett was outstanding. Her delivery of the role’s iconic comic numbers, particularly, The Worst Pies in London, was masterful. [Her performance] was razor-sharp.”  Stage Whispers

“Miranda plays [Mrs Lovett] expertly in all her devious cunning… I praise her on her success as this utter, unredeemable villain.” Theatre People

“Rowe may have the title role but this is Miranda Selwood’s show. She is an absolute scream in [By The Sea]; hers is a fearless performance… It’s Selwood who is simply superb, as the bustling, busybody, bonny cook of The Worst Pies in London, Mrs Lovett. She is feisty, cheeky, fast, furious and vocally, absolutely glorious. She clearly relishes the role and why not? It’s a plum one and it seems she was born to play it. I’m sure Selwood must have… practiced her baking whist practicing her singing, in order to perfect the syncopation in her songs, which are surely the most difficult of the show.”  XS Entertainment

“Rowe’s chemistry with Miranda Selwood’s Mrs Lovett is solid. A highlight was their rendition of A Little Priest, where their dark humour and sense of play make the audience laugh, even if they shouldn’t. Selwood’s comic timing is perfect—the love torn Mrs Lovett has a certain innocence with a hint of pure evil. You will need to go and see for yourself what a delight she is to watch.” Aussie Theatre
