"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

"The Mikado" was a real treat! It had all the flavor of Gilbert & Sullivan, with some 21st century topical/political references which updated the story and made it relevant...and made the audience listen for the humor! The cast was excellent--no screechy sopranos--all wonderful singers and actors. The design team did a lovely job on the set and costumes as well. Overall, a very enjoyable theatre experience!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this production. The music, voices, costuming, stage set, and most importantly the acting and comedy aspects of the show were wonderful. It's great to have humorous current political commentary woven into this...continued
Three little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a pompous government official, and the Lord High Executioner… just some of the hilariously absurd characters in Gilbert & Sullivan’s most beloved work, The Mikado. Set in the fictional town of Titipu, The Mikado is a tale of the beautiful school girl Yum-Yum who is engaged to be married to Ko-Ko despite her love for the romantic wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo. Will these two young lovers find their happily-ever-after… or will heads roll? This deliciously witty musical satire of social mores and politics is sure to delight audiences of all ages!
