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.
