What You'll Get
Sure, "his skin was pale and his eye was odd," but has there ever been a character as charismatic -- or as deadly -- as the demon barber of Fleet Street? Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set in London, the musical tells the tale of the title character, who, after being banished from his city on false charges, returns to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop where he slits the throats of unsuspecting customers with his shaving razor, and she bakes them into pies to dispose of the evidence. Adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie starring Johnny Depp, the dark and witty Sweeney Todd now comes to Casa del Prado Theatre with a steampunk twist by the teen/young adult actors of San Diego Junior Theatre.
Running time is approximately two hours.
This show is recommended for ages 13 and up.
