Stephen Sondheim's Tony-Award winning Sweeney Todd, a macabre musical thriller, blends Sondheim's characteristic wit with a sweeping and hauntingly beautiful score, grisly humor, and chilling drama. Set against the backdrop of the shadowy back alleys and side streets of 19th-century London, the musical follows disgraced barber Sweeney Todd on his quest for vengeance after years of unjust imprisonment and exile. With the aid of Mrs. Lovett, the proprietor of failing pie shop, Sweeney sets out to avenge the terrible wrongs done to him and his family.
