“Beautifully sung, profoundly emotional, and curiously amusing. Sondheim’s masterpiece, brought back to its correct proportions, greets a long-awaited comeback to Broadway.” - The New York Times.
Observe the delightfully deranged partnership among the vengeance-seeking Sweeney Todd and the animated shopkeeper Mrs. Lovett. Set in the depths of a ominous London, this dramatic thriller presents a comical yet darkly Victorian tale of family, homicide, class disparity, and questionable little pastry shops.
Guided by the director of Hamilton, Thomas Kail, this renewed music production features anew Hugh Wheeler’s acclaimed with the Tony Award book and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim’s original composition. The production also features the Olivier-winning choreography by Steven Hoggett and other visionary artists, like Mimi Lien (Scenes), Emilio Sosa (Costumes), Natasha Katz (Lighting), Nevin Steinberg (Sound), J. Jared Janas (Wig, Hair & Makeup), and Jeremy Chernick (Special effects).
Thanks to the impressive 26-piece orchestration by Jonathan Tunick and musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire, audiences can revel in new yet faithful interpretations of Sondheim’s well-known hits such as “A Little Priest,” “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
During a previous discussion with leading star Josh Groban, he reminisces about his journey portraying the role of the title barber.
“… for me the captivating element in Sweeney Todd was the oppositions: the lovely score matched with the ominously humorous content, the dark storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of elegance and grimness in the role, along with many of the most extraordinary melodies and verses ever crafted. It truly is nothing less than a masterpiece to act, irrespective of the genre.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of Broadway’s most outstanding feats in the record of musicals, continually acclaimed across its diverse iterations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving bodies.
