One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile, seeking vengeance against the corrupt judge who ruined his life. 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. Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. Awarded eight Tony’s (including Best Musical) for its Broadway premiere Sweeney Todd is one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years.
