“Exquisitely sung, profoundly emotional, and strangely amusing. Sondheim’s masterpiece, brought back to its correct proportions, welcomes a much-anticipated comeback to Broadway.” - The New York Times.
Observe the charmingly deranged partnership among the retaliatory Sweeney Todd and the animated shopkeeper Mrs. Lovett. Located in the depths of a ominous London, this dramatic thriller narrates a comical yet darkly Victorian story of relatives, homicide, class disparity, and dubious little pastry shops.
Guided by the director of Hamilton, Thomas Kail, this renewed music production reintroduces Hugh Wheeler’s Tony Award-winning book and esteemed composer Stephen Sondheim’s initial music. It also includes the prize-winning choreography by Steven Hoggett and other creative talents, including Mimi Lien (Scenes), Emilio Sosa (Costumes), Natasha Katz (Lighting), Nevin Steinberg (Sound), J. Jared Janas (Wig, Hair & Makeup), and Jeremy Chernick (Special effects).
Thanks to the impressive 26-piece orchestration by Jonathan Tunick and musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire, viewers can savor fresh yet loyal interpretations of Sondheim’s well-known hits such as “A Little Priest,” “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
In an earlier earlier conversation with main actor Josh Groban, he reminisces about his time playing the role of the central barber.
“… for me the most interesting aspect of Sweeney Todd was the oppositions: the lovely score matched with the sinisterly amusing content, the gloomy storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of elegance and grimness in the part, combined with some of the most extraordinary songs and poetry ever composed. It truly is nothing less than a masterpiece to act, regardless of the type.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of Broadway’s most remarkable accomplishments in the record of musicals, consistently praised across its varied iterations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving institutions.
