Sweeney Todd: Sondheim's Macabre Musical
Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set on the seedy side streets of 19th century 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. An instant smash when it first opened on Broadway in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards, and The New York Times gushed, "Sondheim's most ravishing score. One helluva show!" Also adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie with Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Herberger Theater Center in Phoenix.
