Watch: The art of shaving with Skylight Music Theatre's "Sweeney Todd"

"Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" is currently cutting its way through a critically acclaimed run at the Skylight Music Theatre.

So OnMilwaukee headed down to the theater's Third Ward base to chat with the show's Sweeney Todd, actor Andrew Varela, about the musical, defending the movie version starring Johnny Depp, Varela's experience getting a smooth shave on the actual Fleet Street and testing his skills on some potentially unlucky balloons. Better than trying them out on an actual neck and staging a gruesome accidental "Sweeney Todd" tribute over Facebook Live!

"Sweeney Todd" runs at the Skylight through June 11.
