Stephen Sondheim's thrilling musical masterpiece Sweeney Todd delivers a bloody good time with its tale of murderous "barber-ism" and culinary crime. Set in 19th-century London, the story follows the title character, who after being banished for 15 years on false charges, returns to exact his revenge on those who wronged him. Teaming up with local pie maker Mrs. Lovett, they open a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and has them baked into pies ... or does he? This darkly funny show has been shocking and delighting audiences worldwide since its 1979 Broadway premiere won eight Tony Awards. It has since been made into a hit film by Tim Burton with Johnny Depp. Learn More

Great venue, stellar cast (shout out to comic scene stealing Stephen Weston, a Simi Cultural Arts Center staple according to the program and justifiably so), and a delightfully clever show! Well worth the time and asking price. My only criticism is the volume of the horn section in the orchestra (yes, there is an orchestra in the house!) which tended to drown out some of the lyrics, especially during solo pieces, but this is nitpicking. Go see it while you can, because we could all use some feeling good. I have never seen a show in Simi (I live in Oxnard), but now I look forward to going back!
