In one of Sondheim’s most haunting musical thrillers,             Sweeney Todd  brings the gritty underworld of 19th Century London to gruesomely delightful life.  Sweeney Todd, the    demon barber of Fleet Street, comes home after being exiled  by an evil judge who banished him and ravaged                     Sweeney’s wife.

With the help of the diabolical baker below, Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney seeks revenge on the judge and the unwitting inhabitants of London develop an unquenchable taste for “meat” pies.
