Sweeney Todd In Concert
Set to a menacing yet playful score from Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street elicits chills and chuckles while also exploring the obsessive nature of revenge. As the curtain opens, exiled barber Sweeney Todd returns to London after 15 years. He quickly learns that the judge who banished him also raped his wife, thus driving her to suicide. Overcome with grief and hatred, Todd swears vengeance against those who wronged him, but his ire soon moves from the guilty parties to all of humanity. He begins murdering customers at his barber shop, then—seeking a way to dispose of the bodies—allies with Mrs. Lovett, the owner of a neighboring meat-pie shop.
Winner of several health code violations and the Tony for Best Musical when it premiered in 1979, Sweeney Todd both humanizes and darkens the story with Sondheim’s compositions. “The Worst Pies in London” revels in macabre wordplay and gleeful misanthropy, while “Johanna” grips hearts with an earnest ballad to love.
