SWEENEY TODD: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
A Tony Award-Winning Musical Masterpiece
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim / Book by Hugh Wheeler
An indisputable masterpiece by America’s greatest living composer/lyricist, Sweeney Todd is a heart pounding thriller. Set on the seedy side streets of 19th century London and laced with brilliant wit, diabolical humor and extraordinary music, this Tony Award-winning musical tells the tale of an unjustly exiled barber’s quest to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family by a lecherous judge. Aided by the romantically inclined and resourceful pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, the demon barber of Fleet Street exacts his sweet, razor-sharp revenge.
