“Benjamin Czarnota is a frightful and compelling Sweeney Todd, soaring through each number. ‘My Friends’ and the duet ‘Pretty Women’ with Judge Turpin were especially memorable.
- Kate Miller, Cleveland Performing Arts Examiner.
“Sweeney Todd (Benjamin Czarnota) has a roof-shaking voice, an amazing vocal power that he controls masterfully.”
- Margorie Preston, Sun News.
“Benjamin Czarnota is brilliant as the haunted, half-crazed Sweeney Todd, whose fixed stare and cold, lifeless eyes suggest a man possessed by demons. Czarnota's operatic training and experience lift his tormented character and the musical to unparalleled heights.”
- Fran Heller, Cleveland Jewish News.
