Brace yourselves because Sweeney Todd is returning to the stage this winter. The outstanding musical thriller made its mark in history as Stephen Sondheim’s most remarkable work. The devilish plot paired with the hauntingly beautiful tunes makes it a fantastic Broadway production. It debuted on Broadway in 1979, and the story and music remains one of the most powerful scores today. Some of the most notable tracks from the musical include “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around,” and “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd.”
Sondheim came up with the idea for the musical. He was inspired after seeing British actor Christopher Bond's play about the Victorian era serial killer Sweeney Todd. He has said it is "a dark operetta," but also named it "a movie for the stage." It is almost completely underscored: 80% of the show is sung, and Sondheim's music play consistently in the background.
The musical follows a hellbent barber who takes on a path to revenge in London’s 19th century. Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford will star alongside each other as the barbaric barber and his adoring sidekick. As crazy as she is, Mrs. Lovett grinds Sweeney Todd’s victims into meat pies for clueless customers. The one-of-a-kind musical thriller is mostly sung-through and includes both broody tunes and bouncy beats.
Finally!Good news! Broadway audiences will finally be able to enjoy Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece in its entirety - complete with Jonathan Tunick's iconic 26-player orchestration - happening for the first time since its premiere.
