Get yourselves ready because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage in an upcoming Broadway revival. 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 perfect Broadway production. It first appeared on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music has withstood the test of time. Some of the most notable tracks 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 thought of it came after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the old-time 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: 80% of the show is sung, and Sondheim's melodies play constantly behind the action.
The premise shows a hellbent barber who gets sucked into the darkness of revenge in London’s 19th century. The stars of the show are Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford who will play Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett. Lost in her infatuation with Sweeney, Mrs. Lovett grinds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for innocent customers. The distinctive 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.
