To the editor:

Please note that last week’s Culture Club item “Battling Barbers” [March 2] mistakenly stated that Lyric Opera of Chicago’s 2002-’03 company premiere of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, starring Bryn Terfel in the title role, would be a “Harold Prince production.” Lyric has not yet announced the creative team for this new production.

I’d rather get a haircut from Sweeney than have made this error. My apologies to readers and the Lyric for getting it wrong.
