Sweeney Todd

Musical Direction and Direction by Tanner Kelly

Stephen Sondheim's 1979 masterpiece, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, is the tale of a murderous barber, who teams up with a pie shop owner in 19th century London, the show is gruesome, passionate and outrageously funny.

“Sweeney Todd” is a musical thriller about a 19th century London barber who goes on a murderous rampage. Todd was unjustly incarcerated in a penal colony for 15 years.  However, when the show begins, Todd has managed to return to London and has come seeking revenge. He rents a room over the shop of Mrs. Lovett, the proprietress of a struggling pie shop. Todd’s thirst for blood soon expands to include not only the judge but also his unfortunate customers. Meanwhile, Mrs. Lovett happily puts the bodies in the meat grinder and uses the human meat in her meat pies – which become extremely popular with the citizens of London. 

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by Hugh Wheeler
