Expect the most brutal night on the planet at this awesome rendition of Sweeney Todd. It has all the perfect features for that special something that is often lacking in other productions. Murder, revenge, and blood are all the main themes you can expect to see and of course, the real visuals delivered by an incredible cast. You better be fast for this one, as tickets have already started selling and you don’t want to lose out on this incredible show at Lunt-fontanne Theatre on Tuesday 26th December 2023.
So, what's all the fuss about with this musical? Well, allow us to expand! It is one of the most amazing narratives ever told in the history of musicals. The reason is that there is a wicked judge who harbors lust towards the stunning wife of a London barber and extradites him to Australia for a crime he did not commit.
The plot becomes extremely powerful when the man, who now calls himself Sweeney Todd returns to his old trade after a 15-year absence and vows to exact revenge for being unfairly imprisoned. His razor doesn't just shave; it also kills! You read that right, folks: Murder.
The bodies are eventually transported to Mrs. Lovett, where she uses them in her meat-pie business and sells them to unwary Londoners. Sweeney will not be satisfied until he slits the judge's throat, no matter how many people fall to his blade.
Every single thing about it operates in this play's favor - that is why it is loved so much. You can be certain to have the time of your life with this one because it has the most awe-inspiring visuals and props the world has ever seen, but like everything that is this good, there is always a drawback: tickets are selling out quickly. Grab yours right this second before it's too late to catch the show of this winter.
