Brace yourselves because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage in an upcoming Broadway revival. The iconic musical thriller made its mark in history as Stephen Sondheim’s greatest work. The riveting plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it a fantastic Broadway production. It first appeared on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music has withstood the test of time. Some of the best hits from the musical include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim is the mastermind behind the musical. The thought of it came after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the 19th-century murderer Sweeney Todd. He has said it is "a dark operetta," but also called it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: most of the show is sung, and Sondheim's tunes play unwaveringly in the background.
The story shows a hellbent barber who seeks out revenge in 19th-century London. In this Broadway revival, Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford star as the murderous haircutter and his infatuated sidekick, Mrs. Lovett. Lost in her infatuation with Sweeney, Mrs. Lovett grinds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for clueless customers. The unique musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both broody tunes and bouncy beats.
Finally!Good news! Broadway audiences will be able to hear Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece in its entirety - complete with Jonathan Tunick's iconic 26-player orchestration - four decades since this last happened.
