“Splendidly sung, profoundly emotional, and oddly amusing. Sondheim’s masterpiece, brought back to its appropriate proportions, greets a long-awaited comeback to Broadway.” - The New York Times.
Observe the delightfully deranged partnership shared by the retaliatory Sweeney Todd and the lively shopkeeper Mrs. Lovett. Taking place in the depths of a gothic London, this dramatic thriller tells a comical yet darkly Victorian tale of relatives, homicide, class disparity, and dubious little pastry shops.
Guided by the director of Hamilton, Thomas Kail, this revitalized musical features anew Hugh Wheeler’s acclaimed with the Tony Award script and renowned composer Stephen Sondheim’s initial composition. In addition, it incorporates the award-winning choreography by Steven Hoggett and other visionary artists, including 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 astounding 26-piece orchestration by Jonathan Tunick and musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire, audiences can revel in new yet true interpretations of Sondheim’s famous hits such as “A Little Priest,” “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
In a earlier discussion with leading star Josh Groban, he reminisces about his time playing the part of the title barber.
“… for me the captivating element in Sweeney Todd was the contrasts: the captivating score combined with the darkly amusing content, the bleak storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of splendor and darkness in the part, combined with several of the most extraordinary melodies and verses ever composed. It really is nothing but 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 history of musicals, consistently applauded throughout its diverse versions by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving organizations.
