The gruesomely fascinating musical about the ‘Demon Barber of Fleet Street’, one of Sondheim’s greatest hits. From the writing partnership behind A Little Night Music.

Victim of a gross injustice that robbed him of his wife and child, Sweeney Todd sets about exacting a terrible revenge on society: slitting the throats of the customers who visit his barbershop.

But things are getting complicated – a romance has developed with Mrs Lovett, the lady who runs the pie shop next door, and the disappearances are starting to cause concern. With the bodies piling up, Sweeney Todd hits upon a novel idea, and starts passing on his ‘patrons’ to his homely neighbour… Meat pie, anyone?
