Based on an adaptation by Christopher Bond

1979 Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Book, Score, and Lyrics

Stephen Sondheim’s bloody masterpiece Sweeney Todd,  a worldwide success since its Broadway premiere in 1979, tells the tale of an unjustly exiled barber returning to 19th century London to seek 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.

“There is more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement than in a dozen average musicals. Mr. Sondheim has composed an endlessly inventive, highly expressive score that works indivisibly from his brilliant and abrasive lyrics.” – The New York Times

“Sweeney Todd is above all cracking high class entertainment with a pulsating score and a fascinatingly lurid cast of characters that is at times little more than a singing freak show though it is none the worse for that.” – The Independent

“Must be seen by anyone who cares about the gifts and risks of Broadway at its best.” – Newsweek
