"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

Not for the faint of heart as this is a musical that hits on nearly every adolescent angst--from premarital sex to suicide to abortion to sexual abuse--but this is one amazing show. The music will stay in your head for days. The actors, although so young, are a remarkable, talented cast who really enjoy playing to the audience. The show is filled with laughs and gasps, highly entertaining, and a true breath of fresh spring air to the musical genre.

Broadway’s most talked about new musical is now the biggest Tony Award®-winner in years. Spring Awakening is the groundbreaking fusion of morality, sexuality and rock & roll that has awakened Broadway like no other musical in years.
Spring Awakening celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, a poignancy and a passion you will never forget. _The New York Times _says, “Broadway may never be the same again!"
