“Splendidly sung, profoundly emotional, and curiously amusing. Sondheim’s masterpiece, restored to its correct proportions, greets a long-awaited return to Broadway.” - The New York Times.
Observe the delightfully deranged partnership shared by the vengeful Sweeney Todd and the animated shopkeeper Mrs. Lovett. Taking place in the depths of a ominous London, this stage thriller presents a humorous yet darkly Victorian tale of family, homicide, class disparity, and suspicious little pastry shops.
Guided by the director of Hamilton, Thomas Kail, this revitalized musical welcomes back Hugh Wheeler’s Tony Award-winning script and esteemed composer Stephen Sondheim’s initial composition. In addition, it incorporates the award-winning choreography by Steven Hoggett and other innovative minds, 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 impressive 26-piece orchestration by Jonathan Tunick and musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire, audiences can savor novel yet faithful interpretations of Sondheim’s popular hits such as “A Little Priest,” “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
During a prior conversation with leading star Josh Groban, he recalls his experience portraying the character of the main barber.
“… for me what intrigued me the most about Sweeney Todd was the contrasts: the beautiful score matched with the sinisterly amusing content, the gloomy storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of splendor and darkness in the part, combined with some of the most remarkable songs and poetry ever written. It really is nothing short of a masterpiece to act, regardless of the type.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street stands as one of Broadway’s most notable feats in the record of musicals, persistently applauded throughout its varied iterations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving organizations.
