Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded 8 TONY’s, one of them for Best Musical, for its Broadway premiere. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler crafted a tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat with Sweeney Todd that has simultaneously shocked, awed, and delighted audiences across the world.
Not to be missed, “Sweeney Todd” is considered one of Sondheim’s masterpieces and has enjoyed recent revivals and a film by Tim Burton. An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun!
Featuring a lush, complex musical score, with clever and memorable songs such as “The Worst Pies in London,” “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” “City on Fire” and “Pretty Women,” SWEENEY TODD is a show — and a man — you won’t soon forget!
Recommended for ages 13 and up.
