Trailer for “Shirley Todd: The Demon Beautician of East Street” posted to myspace in April 2008. You can hear Chris’ voice at the end (and I wouldn’t be surprised if he made the whole trailer himself).
“In high school, my favourite role was actually Mr. Lovett in Shirley Todd, which was a show that I wrote, directed, and built the sets for… I just loved Sweeney Todd and I think Sweeney Todd is so funny in itself, it almost spoofs itself. I think really I just wanted an excuse to sing ‘The Worst Pies in London’, because I can hit all those notes and all that, so I just wrote a show around it.”
“We had this thing where each year, the teacher picked a senior that got to do their own SNL-type show, and every senior before me had always been just that - SNL, with skits and gags that weren’t really funny, but it was our parents and they laughed anyway… So I just took it way too seriously. I was like, ‘No, we’re doing a production… We’re doing ‘Shirley Todd: The Demon Beautician of East Street’, it’s going to be a spoof of Sweeney Todd and it’s gonna take place in punk-rock England…’
We had so much fun, but I’m so upset because no one videotaped it, so there’s no video footage! I remember I wrote the script and the first draft was about 250 pages long, which would’ve been about six and a half hours… But I had to cut it back to 50 pages and it was about an hour and a half.”
“The town of Clovis just wasn’t ready for it. We had so many sexual innuendoes and drug references and political references – I doubt most of the kids who were in it knew what they were saying.”
“I think it would be a phenomenal Broadway show! The people of Clovis, California didn’t appreciate it as much as they should have.”
“I’ll do it again someday, maybe for charity.”
