Before Tim Burton’s grisly 2007 movie and the Tony-winning Stephen Sondheim musical on which it was based, there was Christopher Bond’s 1973 play, Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Based on a tale that dates back to at least the 1800s, the pitch-black thriller introduces a barber driven mad with rage against the judge who deported him under false pretenses and the whole of Victorian society, who failed to prevent the death of his wife. Upon returning to London, he takes out his thirst for revenge on the newly shaven throats of his customers, while his conspirator, the pie-shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, disposes of the bodies in a unique and savory way. These vicious but occasionally poignant characters are ferociously embodied by students of VCU’s theater program, one of the largest in the region. Barry Bell, an accomplished film and TV actor in addition to his stage credits, waves his director’s baton behind the curtain.

Though this merchant features a discounted price for seniors, VCU staff, and students, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for most customers.

Theatre VCU

For nearly seven decades, Theatre VCU has worked toward two goals: to help create a new generation of theater artists and to ensure the tanks on their applause-powered generators stay full. Young performers, costumers, scenic and lighting designers, and stage managers all hone their crafts and nurture their talents with the theatre—and they manage to create some pretty great art along the way. Recent productions have included the R-rated puppet musical Avenue Q, Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cell Phone, and George C. Wolfe's powerful classic The Colored Museum.
