The lot next to the theater is great IF you get there early. The attendants gave us a voucher to park at a nearby hotel for free, but the delay cut into our dinner time. We managed to grab a great casual dinner quick and cheap at a local Mexican joint with great street tacos and make it to the play in time. Show runs long so use the rest room before it starts!

One of the best productions I have ever seen in San Diego. Every actor was top notch and the set and orchestra were outstanding. I have seen Sweeney Todd on Broadway (2 different productions with Patti Lupone) and this was right up there with...continued

Stephen Sondheim’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber”-ism and culinary crime is a mix of macabre, visceral drama with howlingly funny dark humor. Sweeney Todd, a barber seeking revenge, joins forces with Mrs. Lovett, the proprietress of the pie shop downstairs from his barber shop, and soon the people of 19th century London are lining up for her wonderful and mysterious new meat pies with a grisly secret ingredient.
