Never mind the title, it's Nellie Lovett, the demon baker, who deserves all the attention in this polished production of Stephen Sondheim's musical thriller. As Sweeney's pie-making accomplice, Liz McCartney sets the curve with a commanding voice and stage presence. The way McCartney serves up "The Worst Pies in London" is almost enough to make you overlook Gregg Edelman's well-sung but innocuous take on the title role. The miscast Edelman is the show's only misfire, though. Rachel Rockwell's ensemble is musically superb, and subtle projections by Mike Tutaj expand on Kevin Depinet's moody, functional London set. --Dan Jakes
