“Beautifully sung, profoundly emotional, and curiously amusing. Sondheim’s masterpiece, brought back to its appropriate proportions, greets a much-anticipated return to Broadway.” - The New York Times.
Observe the pleasantly deranged partnership between the vengeance-seeking Sweeney Todd and the animated shopkeeper Mrs. Lovett. Set in the depths of a ominous London, this stage thriller tells a amusing yet darkly Victorian story of family, homicide, class disparity, and questionable little pastry shops.
Guided by the director of Hamilton, Thomas Kail, this revitalized musical features anew Hugh Wheeler’s acclaimed with the Tony Award writing and renowned composer Stephen Sondheim’s original composition. It also includes the prize-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 remarkable 26-piece orchestration by Jonathan Tunick and musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire, viewers can enjoy new yet loyal interpretations of Sondheim’s famous hits such as “A Little Priest,” “Pirelli’s Miracle Elixir” and “The Worst Pies in London.”
In a earlier conversation with principal performer 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 captivating score matched with the ominously funny content, the gloomy storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of splendor and darkness in the character, coupled with many of the most extraordinary music and lyrics ever written. It truly is nothing but a masterpiece to present, regardless of the nature.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of Broadway’s most outstanding achievements in the chronicles of musicals, consistently applauded across its different incarnations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving bodies.
