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 gruesome theater production and its creepy allure is a big part of why it's so amazing.
You see, there is this evil judge who longs for the beautiful wife of a London barber and transports him to Australia for a crime he did not do. On his return after 15 years, calling himself Sweeney Todd, and going back to his old trade, the now enraged man vows to take revenge for his false imprisonment, and this is where the story gets very good. His razor does more than just shave; it kills! Yes, you read that right: murder!
The bodies are eventually hurled down to Mrs. Lovett, who uses them in her meat-pie shop and sells them to unsuspecting London customers. Though many fall to his blade, Sweeney's hunger for blood will not be satisfied until he cuts open the judge's throat.
