Attend the dark, witty and Tony Award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the backdrop of nineteenth-century London.
This show is most appropriate for ages 12 and up and is not intended for young audiences.
"Sweeney Todd" has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere and has been adapted for high school performers in "Sweeney Todd School Edition." Stephen Sondheim's and Hugh Wheeler's ("A Little Night Music," "Pacific Overtures") tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world.
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-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!
