Spielberg puts his dancing shoes on

Obviously thinking it may adorn his fireplace shelf with a few more Oscars [the way “Chicago” has Rob Marshall’s] Steven Spielberg is looking at adapting the musical “Sweeney Todd” for the big screen. Dreamworks’ Walter Parkes has left to Chicago to meet with Stephen Sondheim to see whether he’d give it the thumbs up. Variety says “Sweeney Todd" made its B’way bow in March 1979 with Angela Lansbury, Victor Garber and Len Cariou starring. Harold Prince directed and producers included Martin Richards who says he, too, has an appointment to talk to Spielberg.
