STAGE TUBE: Opening Night of SWEENEY TODD at the Portland Center Stage
SWEENEY TODD is now playing at the Portland Center Stage through October 21 on the Main Stage. Check out the video below from PDX Tonight Live at 7!
Widely acknowledged as Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd is set amongst London’s seedy side streets and laced with Sondheim’s characteristically brilliant wit and dark humor.
This landmark musical depicts the barber Sweeney Todd’s savage quest for justice and retribution after years of false imprisonment. Aided by harridan pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, who is secretly in love with him, he sets out to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family. Combining comic turns and chilling drama, music hall-style numbers and hauntingly beautiful romantic songs, Sweeney Todd offers a fascinating portrait of a man driven to madness by injustice.
Sweeney Todd runs approximately two hours and 40 minutes with one intermission. For more information, visit: http://www.pcs.org/sweeney/
