Stephen Sondheim's thrilling musical masterpiece delivers a bloody good time with its tale of murderous "barber-ism" and culinary crime. Set in 19th-century London, the twisted story of Sweeney Todd's inhumanity toward his fellow man has themes that resonate today as much as they did when Sweeney Todd's story first appeared in the 1840s. Returning to London after being banished for 15 years on false charges, Sweeney Todd aims to exact revenge on those who wronged him. First focusing his grisly malevolence on the judge who framed him, his bloodthirstiness grows. Teaming up with a local piemaker, Mrs. Lovett, they open a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and has them baked into pies ... or does he? The Chameleon Theatre Circle's production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's award-winning musical is modern and intimate. This darkly humorous show serves up deliciously macabre portions of sinister spite. Learn More

Fun event! This is one of my favorite plays- saw it at Theater In The Round a few years back, too. Hilarious script with very quirky characters- though it has its somber & moving moments, too. The actors and crew did a great job bringing this story to life!
Quotes & Highlights
- The New York Times called the play "exceedingly whimsical and playfully wicked."
This show is suggested for mature audiences.
