Prepare yourselves because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage this winter. The unforgettable musical thriller made itself known as Stephen Sondheim’s greatest work. The thrilling plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it the best Broadway musical. It debuted on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music remains one of the most powerful scores today. Some of the most unforgettable songs from the show include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim came up with the idea for the musical. The idea came after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the Victorian era serial killer Sweeney Todd. He calls it "a dark operetta," but also named it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: it is sung for over 80% of the show, and Sondheim's tunes play consistently behind the action.
The premise follows a hellbent barber who gets sucked into the darkness of revenge in London’s 19th century. Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford will star alongside each other as the barbaric barber and his adoring sidekick. Dedicated to helping Sweeney Todd, Mrs. Lovett grinds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for clueless customers. The distinctive musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both haunting sounds and bouncy tunes.
Alas! Broadway audiences will witness Stephen Sondheim's Tony Award-winning score in its entirety - complete with Jonathan Tunick's iconic 26-player orchestration - happening for the first time since its premiere.
