Prepare yourselves because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage this fall. The outstanding musical thriller made its mark in history as Stephen Sondheim’s best work. The devilish plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it the best Broadway show. It debuted on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music continues to dazzle audiences today. Some of the most notable tracks 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. The thought of it came after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the 19th-century murderer Sweeney Todd. He described it as "a dark operetta," but also defined it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: it is sung for over 80% of the show, and Sondheim's music play unwaveringly behind the action.
The story is about a hellbent barber who seeks out revenge in 19th-century London. The stars of the show are Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford who will play Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett. As crazy as she is, Mrs. Lovett grinds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for innocent customers. The one-of-a-kind musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both broody tunes and bouncy beats.
Alas! Broadway audiences will finally be able to enjoy Stephen Sondheim's best score in its entirety - complete with Jonathan Tunick's iconic 26-player orchestration - for the first time since 1980.
