Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd! Set in 19th century London, a wrongly convicted barber returns home to seek revenge against those responsible for his imprisonment and separation from his wife and child. Sweeney Todd quickly sets up shop on Fleet Street, and with the help of his accomplice who owns the pie shop below, slits the throats of customers who are then baked into pies.
Sondheim’s quintessential musical thriller, Sweeney Todd, expertly balances high emotion and horror with an underlying humor. Making the audience aware of their own humanity, the tale of Sweeney Todd reminds us of the power of love and the dangers of revenge and greed.
