Sweeney Todd

14th to 21st October 2017

One of the darkest musicals ever written, 'Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street' is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public.

 

Possibly composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the most significant achievements of the American musical theatre scene of the last fifty years, and it’s the high water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable collaborations with director Harold Prince.
