Eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical for its Broadway debut, attest to Sweeney Todd's worldwide success. Fans all over the world were thrilled by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's dark musical and its eerie allure is a big part of why it's so popular.
You see, there is this evil judge who wants the beautiful wife of a London barber and sends him to Australia for a crime he did not do. Returning after 15 years, calling himself Sweeney Todd, and going back to his old trade, the now vengeful man vows to take revenge for his false incarceration, and this is where the narrative gets very good. His razor does more than just shave; it kills! Yes, you read that correctly: murder!
The bodies are eventually shuttled down to Mrs. Lovett, who uses them as an ingredient in her meat-pie shop and sells them to unsuspecting London customers. Though many fall to his blade, Sweeney's thirst for blood will not be satisfied until he slits the judge's throat.
You must be there at Lunt-fontanne Theatre to witness this incredible narrative unfold. The cast is completely triumphant in rendering this rendition, and the costumes are truly remarkable. Unfortunately, like all good things in life, there will only be a few slots available, and they will finish very quickly.
