"His skin was pale and his eye was odd" -- and that's only the beginning of what's unsettling about Mr. Todd, the barber/serial killer at the dark heart of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd. Set in the gloomy alleys of 19th-century London, this production from Lyric Stage Company of Boston "attends the tale" of Todd who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his bloody revenge. A legendary smash in 1979, this black comedy won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. Recently adapted into a hit movie starring Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Boston in a vibrant production directed by Spiro Veloudos. Learn More

Very funny play with many laugh-out-loud moments and injokes, especially for fans of Restoration playwrights. The characters are vivid, intense, utterly believable and captivating. If you are not familiar with the florid, overstuffed vernacular in use during the mid-17th Century, you may have a hard time understanding all of the lines, which are delivered with spitfire precision and in a variety of surprisingly accurate accents. A highly enjoyable evening out!
