"[Tim] wanted to play Sweeney Todd and Mrs.Lovett so there’s a potential for romance, and in a lot of the previous productions its not necessarily been a romance. Mrs.Lovett has always been in love with Sweeney, but he wanted a moment where there’s a potential that you could see this couple getting together. And right till the end, just before he kills her you think ‘Oh my God, he’s going to accept her.’"
