ABOUT THE SHOW...
SWEENEY TODD has found success as a musical stage thriller around the world since being awarded 8 Tonys, one of them for Best Musical, for its Broadway premiere. Adapted to film by Tim Burton with Johnny Depp in the title role, Sweeney has slashed his way across entertainment mediums.
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!
With Sweeney Todd, composer Stephen Sondheim and librettist Hugh Wheeler have crafted a tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat that has simultaneously shocked, awed, and delighted audiences across the world!
