Sweeney Todd Summary

Entertainment Weekly says it's the #1 show of the year. Tony Award-winners Patti LuPone (Evita, Anything Goes) and Michael Cerveris (The Who's Tommy, Assassins) co-star in Broadway's dazzling new reinvention of Stephen Sondheim's magnificent musical thriller. The legendary demon barber, hell-bent on revenge, takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a delicious plot to slice their way through England's upper crust. Justice will be served -- along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills. New York magazine says it's Broadway's Best Musical, and Time Out New York calls it "the most addictively delicious dish on Broadway in years." Innovative, intimate and ingenious, this revolutionary new production of Sweeney Todd "is an event theatergoers will be talking about for years." (The Wall Street Journal).
