Brace yourselves because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage in a highly anticipated revival. The unforgettable musical thriller is known as Stephen Sondheim’s best work. The thrilling plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it a fantastic Broadway show. It first appeared on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music continues to dazzle audiences today. Some of the best hits from the musical include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim is the brains behind the musical. The thought of it came after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the 19th-century serial killer Sweeney Todd. He described it as "a dark operetta," but also called it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: it is sung for over 80% of the show, and Sondheim's tunes play unwaveringly in the background.
The story follows a hellbent barber who takes on a path to revenge in London’s 19th century. In this Broadway revival, Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford star as the murderous haircutter and his infatuated sidekick, Mrs. Lovett. As crazy as she is, Mrs. Lovett molds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for clueless customers. The distinctive musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both haunting sounds and bouncy tunes.
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.
