Cancel Your Friday Plans: Here Is Emma Thompson Totally Killing It In Sweeney Todd

Bless my eyes! Fresh surprise!

Considering the role of Sweeney Todd‘s Mrs. Lovett was originated by Angela Lansbury, Emma Thompson had metaphorically big shoes to fill when she played the grotesque pie-peddler at Lincoln Center last March. But judging from clips released by PBS in anticipation of this Friday’s broadcast of the New York Philharmonic-accompanied show, the actress’ cannibal game was on point.

Here for your viewing pleasure is the grand dame of awesomeness slaying “God That’s Good” (above) and “Worst Pies in London” (below). Don’t forget, you can catch the full recording September 26th on PBS!
