Ladies and gentlemen! May I have your attention, please?
Are your nostrils a-quivering, tingling as well,
At that delicate, lucious, ambrosial smell?
Yes, they are I can tell! Well, Ladies and gentlemen,
That aroma enriching the breeze
Is like nothing compared to its succulent source,
As the gourmets among you will tell you of course!
Ladies and gentlemen, you can't imagine the rapture in store- Just inside of this door!There, you'll sample Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pies, savory and sweet pies, as you'll see.
You who eat pies, Mrs. Lovett's Meat Pies, conjure up the treat pies used to be!
-Over here, boy how about some ale?
-Can we some sevice, waiter?
-What about that pie, boy?
Laides and Gentelmen!
-Toby! -Coming! 'scuse me! -Ale there! -Right mum! -Quick now!
God that's Good!
After my not-so-subtle hint in my last MOC, I decided to finally put the almost-finishing touches on this peice and present it. This has been around for a while now, the original being on MOCPages and Brickshelf
, but I've made a lot of improvements since then, the most notable being the tiling of the pie shop, the updating of flesh figures, and a slightly more advanced barber's chair mechanism, which will now open the trapdoor as well. Right now this is only about 90% finished, as I still need to add in the palor room.
This is based on the 1982 Touring Production of the Stephen Sondheim/Hugh Wheeler musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, starring Angela Lansbury and George Hearn. I took careful measure to try and make the main figures look as much as their real life counterparts as possible, which (Hopefully) shows in this pic
of the entire cast together.
I have tons of video footage of the barber chair's mechanism, which will make it onto Flickr soon, I just need to find where it is on my computer.Flickr set here
EDIT: Oh, by the way, here's a clip
of the song being performed at the '82 production, if anyone wants to look at it for comparison's sake.
