“Beautifully sung, profoundly emotional, and curiously amusing. Sondheim’s masterpiece, brought back to its rightful proportions, greets a eagerly-anticipated comeback to Broadway.” - The New York Times.
Observe the delightfully deranged partnership among the vengeful Sweeney Todd and the energetic shopkeeper Mrs. Lovett. Taking place in the depths of a ominous London, this dramatic thriller narrates a amusing yet darkly Victorian tale of relatives, homicide, class disparity, and suspicious little pastry shops.
Guided by the director of Hamilton, Thomas Kail, this renewed music production features anew Hugh Wheeler’s acclaimed with the Tony Award writing and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim’s initial music. It also includes the award-winning choreography by Steven Hoggett and other visionary artists, 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 revel in new yet loyal interpretations of Sondheim’s famous hits such as “A Little Priest,” “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
In an earlier previous conversation with leading star Josh Groban, he recalls his journey portraying the character of the central barber.
“… for me the captivating element in Sweeney Todd was the contrasts: the beautiful score combined with the darkly humorous content, the bleak storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of beauty and darkness in the part, combined with several of the most remarkable music and lyrics ever written. It truly is nothing but a masterpiece to perform, regardless of the nature.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street stands as one of Broadway’s most remarkable accomplishments in the record of musicals, continually acclaimed throughout its different incarnations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving bodies.
