Attend the dark, witty and Tony award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the backdrop of Victorian London. Benjamin Barker, now known as Sweeney Todd, was one of the most accomplished barbers in London. Unjustly exiled by the depraved Judge Turpin, Sweeney Todd returns 15 years later seeking retribution against the man who harmed his beloved wife Lucy and took his child. Todd’s quest for revenge leads him to Mrs. Lovett’s failing pie shop, and the two go into business together. Todd’s increasing blood lust inspires a new ingredient for Mrs. Lovett’s pies…and their unsuspecting customers will pay the price!
Haunting scores by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, Sweeney Todd is based on an adaptation by Christopher Bond. This production masterpiece is sure to both thrill and send chills up your spine. THIS SHOW IS RATED R.
