And why, exactly, is everyone speaking about this show? Let us fill you in on the story! This is without a doubt one of the most awesome tales in all of musical history.
You see, there's this wicked judge who extradites a London barber to Australia for a crime he didn't do just so he can have an affair with the man's beautiful wife.
After being unjustly imprisoned for 15 years, the now-mad man returns to his old trade under a new moniker, Sweeney Todd, and promises revenge. Besides doing his barber business, his razor also kills. Murder!
Once he is done, the bodies are given Mrs. Lovett, who bakes meat pies out of them and sells them to the unsuspecting population of London.
Sweeney's hunger for blood will not be satisfied, no matter how many victims he kills, until he slits the judge's throat. There is nothing this play lacks. You can count on this one to provide the best time of your life, with a story that will blow your head off and visuals and props that have never been witnessed before anywhere in the world. Purchase your tickets right here before it's too late to see the show of the spring. Trust us when we tell you, you don't want to miss out on this one.
