Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even beastlier baker. Set in 19th-century London, this adult production from STAR Repertory Theatre "attends the tale" of the title character, who after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his revenge. Teaming up with pie maker Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and she bakes them into pies. A legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed 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 Avo Playhouse in a vibrant production directed by Brandon Sherman. Learn More

There are three different casts for this show, which results in the talent's being spread out pretty thinly. At the opening-night show, the recorded music often drowned out the singers (and that wasn't always a bad thing--there were two or three really strong singers among the leads but lots of weak voices in the cast). The young actors and actresses did seem to be enjoying themselves, but I can't in good conscience recommend the show.
