From legendary Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, “Sweeney Todd” is a dark comedy that tells the thrilling story of a mad-man barber returning to his home of London after years of imprisonment. Sweeney has only one goal: to seek revenge on the evil Judge Turpin, who tore apart his family. Along his bloodthirsty quest, Sweeney finds an unlikely partner in Mrs. Lovett, the eccentric owner of a failing pie shop. Together, they concoct an ingenious plan that allows Sweeney to continue to murderous rampage while bringing a new and exciting “flavor” to Mrs. Lovett’s pies. The result is one you will have to see to believe and perhaps taste for yourself!
