Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set in 19th-century London, the musical tells the tale of the title character, who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and she bakes them into pies to get rid of the evidence. A legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed that it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. 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
