SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARER OF FLEET STREET (bound musical score)

NY: Privately published, 1979. Private edition. Hardcover. Bound musical score as performed on the opening night of March 1, 1979 at the Uris Theater. (Bound musical scores are privately published, a project usually undertaken by the music preparation supervisor, and then presented to producers and creative principals as a momento or official record of the music as presented opening night.) This copy is inscribed by Mathilde Pincus and Al Miler, whose company was responsible for music supervision on Sweeney Todd to Ruth Mitchell, who was director Hal Prince's assistant on the musical and his long-time associate producer on most of his Broadway shows: "To Ruth, we thank you, as part of the production staff, for this great, great work, and we love you as a great friend - and sincere. Sincerely - with much love - Mathilde and Al". Typically, there are about 12-18 bound musical scores per production. Never commercially sold, only for private presentation. Squarish folio, green cloth, gilt titles front and spine, some speckles of white (bookhelf) paint front cover. Very Good+. Item #011573
