Sweeney Todd


A Dark and Thrilling Musical Delight

Book by Hugh Wheeler, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

This haunting musical tells 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. Just in time for the Halloween season, this thrilling masterpiece is sure to delight and terrify.
