Get yourselves ready because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage this fall. The iconic musical thriller is known as Stephen Sondheim’s most remarkable work. The devilish plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it the perfect Broadway musical. It debuted on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music has withstood the test of time. Some of the most notable tracks from the show include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim is the mastermind behind the musical. The thought of it came 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 named 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 musical follows a hellbent barber who gets sucked into the darkness of revenge in 19th-century London. In this Broadway revival, Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford star as the murderous haircutter and his infatuated sidekick, Mrs. Lovett. As crazy as she is, Mrs. Lovett molds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for clueless customers. The one-of-a-kind musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both dark tunes and upbeat melodies.
Finally!Good news! 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.
This is your chance to enjoy Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street as it makes its way to your hometown this fall! The show’s highly anticipated return is one you need to see. This haunting musical will be sure to keep you entertained all throughout. So, get up and tell all your friends because you need to witness the show!
