Lovett, that his wife is dead. Mrs. Lovett likes Sweeney though. To avenge the death of his wife, Sweeney goes on a murder spree to satisfy his lust for the blood of the judge, which eventually he gets. Later Sweeney finds that one person he killed was his wife, who had never died. Sweeney in turn kills Mrs. Lovett, and the kid who had a crush on Mrs. Lovett kills Sweeney, showing that murder can express love and love can drive you to murder, but murder is NOT the answer.In The Phantom of the Opera, one of my personal favorites, the Phantom kills a bunch of people to make the woman he loves a star. In the end, he realizes that murder was not the answer, because when love is returned, you don't need murder or riches or anything like that. You just need love.Finally, in Chicago, Roxie murders her lover because of lack of love. He's leaving her. We learn about other women who have done the same. We learn that sometimes we need to do drastic things to be noticed, and if we have a good enough story, we'll get away with those things. God bless the American justice system.In conclusion, many themes are combined in many different works, love and ways of expression being prevalent in many, and sometimes murder is a good way to express your feelings, even if it is against the law.
