Best Reason to Love Government Oversight 

Sweeney Todd

Staff Pick

For the past few years, Idaho Shakespeare Festival has been wowing summer audiences with a large-scale musical. And while the production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street certainly delivered an entertaining combo of great performances and music, it encouraged a heavy appreciation for food safety standards. If you thought all the horse meat found labeled as beef in Europe was bad, imagine if you found out your tasty snack was soylent green. It's a timeless lesson: It's fun to sing about turning murder victims into meat pies and selling them to unwitting diners, but you wouldn't actually want to sink your teeth into a piping-hot portion of your neighbors. We hope.
