Stephen Sondheim's thrilling masterpiece of murderous "barber-ism" and culinary crime is set in 19th-century London and tells the twisted tale of Benjamin Barker, alias Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after being banished for 15 years on false charges. Now he's ready to exact revenge on those who wronged him. At first focusing his grisly malevolence on the judge who framed him, his insatiable thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers. A tale of retribution and obsession, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street serves up deliciously macabre portions of gruesome humor, sinister spite and suspicious meat pies. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "[The musical takes] American idealism, resentment and fear of being perpetually misunderstood - adds a ravenous sense of entitlement and mixes these ingredients together in one big, gawky, sexually charged package: America, the eternal teenager. And who better to lead this restless, appetite-driven creature than a red-blooded rock star?” --Ben Brantley, The New York Times
- "Insanely funny! Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson makes a bid for the smartest, sharpest new musical in years." --Time Out
- "Exhilarating and genuinely thought-provoking. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson oozes political relevance." --USA Today
