Get yourselves ready because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage in an upcoming Broadway revival. The unforgettable musical thriller made its mark in history as Stephen Sondheim’s most remarkable work. The devilish plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it the best Broadway musical. It premiered on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music remains one of the most powerful scores today. Some of the most notable tracks from the musical include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim is the brains behind the musical. The idea came after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the Victorian era murderer Sweeney Todd. He has said it is "a dark operetta," but also named it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: 80% of the show is sung, and Sondheim's tunes play unwaveringly behind the action.
The premise shows 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 clueless customers. The unique musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both haunting sounds and bouncy tunes.
Finally!Good news! Broadway audiences will witness Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece in its entirety - complete with Jonathan Tunick's iconic 26-player orchestration - for the first time since 1980.
