About the Event

“Musically thrilling, dramatically inventive and visually striking!” —Toronto Star

Innovative, intimate and ingenious, this revolutionary new production of Sweeney Todd is “an event theatergoers will be talking about for years.” (The Wall Street Journal). The legendary demon barber, hell-bent on revenge, takes up with his enterprising neighbor, in a delicious plot to slice their way through London’s upper crust. Justice will be served—along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills. Directed by Tony Award winner John Doyle, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, this dazzling reinvention of a magnificent musical thriller is set to stun theatergoers as never before. This nationally-touring production is recommended for mature audiences.
