Get yourselves ready because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage in a highly anticipated revival. The outstanding musical thriller made itself known as Stephen Sondheim’s best work. The thrilling plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it the perfect Broadway musical. It debuted on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music remains one of the most powerful scores today. Some of the best hits from the musical include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim came up with the idea for the musical. He was inspired after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the 19th-century serial killer Sweeney Todd. He has said it is "a dark operetta," but also called it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: 80% of the show is sung, and Sondheim's music play constantly behind the action.
The premise is about a hellbent barber who takes on a path to revenge in London’s 19th century. Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford will star alongside each other as the barbaric barber and his adoring sidekick. As crazy as she is, Mrs. Lovett bakes Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for unsuspecting customers. The one-of-a-kind musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both dark tunes and upbeat melodies.
Alas! Broadway audiences will witness Stephen Sondheim's best score in its entirety - complete with Jonathan Tunick's iconic 26-player orchestration - happening for the first time since its premiere.
