Tony Award winner Patti LuPone returns to Broadway as Mrs. Lovett in the musical Sweeney Todd. Featuring music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Hugh Wheeler from an adaptation by Christopher Bond, the production is directed and designed by John Doyle, with music supervision and orchestrations by Sarah Travis. Ms. LuPone stars opposite Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris, who plays Sweeney Todd.
The musical is based on the 19th century legend of a London barber, who is driven to crime when a malevolent judge takes his wife and child from him.
His plan for revenge includes a cutthroat partnership with Mrs. Lovett, an enterprising businesswomen, who is soon producing the tastiest meat pies in London.
