Lunt-fontanne Theatre | New York, New York
This unbelievable legendary narrative about a barber who returns from wrongful imprisonment to cause havoc on the streets of London will leave you in a state of awe. It has all the hallmarks of a fantastic night out for any musical fan. You can expect to experience the most fantastic visuals, a cast that is second to none and the most superb musical score ever written. You HAVE to be there, but the viewing at Lunt-fontanne Theatre on Sunday 1st October 2023 for Sweeney Todd is sure to sell out in an instant so be sure to grab your tickets right here before they sell out.
What makes this production so special, then? Let us tell you! It is regarded as one of the most unsurpassed tales in musical history that have ever been told. You see, there is this evil judge who imprisons a London barber to Australia for a deed he did not commit because of his craving for the attractive wife of said barber.
The story-line becomes extremely powerful when the man, who now calls himself Sweeney Todd, comes back after 15 years, picks up his old trade, and swears to exact revenge for his false imprisonment. His instrument not only shaves, but also kills! That's right, you read that correctly: murder. Eventually, the bodies are transported to Mrs. Lovett, who uses them in her meat-pie store and sells them to unwary Londoners.
Sweeney's want for blood will not be fulfilled until he slits the judge's throat, even though many fall to his blade. This music is excellent in every way. You expect this one to give you the time of your life thanks to a fantastic narrative and the most incredible visuals and props the world has ever seen, but sadly, like everything this good, there is always a drawback: tickets are selling out fast. Grab yours here and now before it's too late to avoid missing the show of this fall.
