Based on a version of Sweeney Todd by Christopher Bond

Stephen Sondheimís haunting musical thriller has been hailed "the greatest musical of the past half-centuryĒ by the Wall Street Journal. Sophisticated and uncompromising, ďSweeney ToddĒ has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor. You will find yourself laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
