Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set in 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 legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards, and The New York Times gushed, "Sondheim's most ravishing score. One helluva show!" Recently adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie with Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts in a vibrant production directed by Robert Kelley. Learn More

Named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in 2010, the Bay Area’s Company C Contemporary Ballet‘s eclectic and electrifying style redefines ballet for a new generation with its dynamic and adventurous repertoire. The 2011 season opens with an emotional thrill ride from the depths of David Anderson’s soliloquy of grief, loss and hope to heart-pounding and heart-rending ballets by Maurice Causey, Daniel Ezralow, Charles Anderson and Benjamin Bowman. This program challenges the full-on athleticism of the Company and rewards audiences with breath-taking moments of galvanizing choreography, theatrical intensity and the excitement of dance pushed to its technical limits.
