Lea Salonga to Star in SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET at Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands
Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd! The classic Stephen Sondheim musical, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street will debut in Singapore at Sands Theatre at Marina Bay Sands Nov. 28 through Dec. 8.
Tony and Olivier Award-winning actress Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon) returns to Singapore to star in the musical. This tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world since it first opened on Broadway, where it won eight Tony Awards (including for Best Musical). The musical is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary since its premiere.
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!
Featuring two unforgettable star turns and some of the most chilling music ever written for the stage, this masterpiece is sure both to thrill and delight audiences.
