Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and the beastly baker he befriends. Set in 19th century London, the musical tells the tale of the title character, who, after being banished from his city on false charges, returns to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop -- where he slits the throats of customers, and she bakes them into pies to dispose of the evidence. A smash hit in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards, and The New York Times gushed, "Sondheim's most ravishing score. One helluva show!" See this equal parts haunting and hilarious musical in this thrilling, chilling new production from Porchlight Music Theatre at Stage 773. Learn More
