    Stephen Sondheim's Tony-Award winning Sweeney Todd, a macabre musical thriller, blends Sondheim’s characteristic wit with a sweeping and hauntingly beautiful score, grisly humor, and chilling drama. Set against the backdrop of the shadowy back alleys and side streets of 19th-century London, the musical follows disgraced barber Sweeney Todd on his quest for vengeance after years of unjust imprisonment and exile. With the aid of Mrs. Lovett, the proprietor of a failing pie shop, Sweeney sets out to avenge the terrible wrongs done to him and his family. “There is more artistic energy, creative personality, and plain excitement in Sweeney Todd … than in a dozen average musicals.” — New York Times
