No, you're not experiencing déjà vu: March's second local production of Sondheim's bloody masterpiece opens this week at PlayMakers Rep, three weeks after the other closed at Raleigh Little Theatre. (It's one of those times when one wishes local theater companies would consult with one another more.) On this outing, Broadway actor David St. Louis (Side Show, Harlem Song) plays the barber with that cutthroat way of doing business, and Annie Golden (who plays Norma Romano on Orange Is the New Black) is his accomplice in cannibalistic cuisine, Mrs. Lovett. With Mark Hartman leading the orchestra, the music should be strong in guest director Jen Wineman's PlayMakers debut. —Byron Woods
