SWEENEY TODD PERFORMANCE GONE WRONG

The production, which centers on a murderous barber and features multiple throat-cutting scenes, was affected by the lead actor accidentally cutting the throats of two boys during the opening night performance. Audience members claim not to have realized the incident until the two were rushed to the emergency room following the show.
Headmaster Steve Cole insisted that the razors had been checked “many, many times” and were blunted with cellophane and duct tape before the performance. The two boys are currently recovering in a nearby hospital.
