Quotes & Highlights

“Don’t expect Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies as the special of the day in the dining room at the Drury Lane Oakbrook. But the filling on this grandly ambitious stage is tasty indeed. If you like intensity of flavor and a little kick.” —Chicago Tribune

Description

Music and Lyrics by: Stephen Sondheim

Book by: Hugh Wheeler

Directed By: Rachel Rockwell

Choreographed By: Rachel Rockwell

 

Stephen Sondheim’s haunting musical thriller has been hailed "the greatest musical of the past half-century” by the Wall Street Journal. Sophisticated and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor. You will find yourself laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
