Sweeney Todd is based on the 19th century legend of a London barber driven to a life of crime after a malevolent judge takes his wife and child from him. Sweeney's plan for revenge includes a cutthroat partnership with Mrs. Lovett--an enterprising businesswoman--who is soon producing the tastiest meat pies in London. Directed and designed by John Doyle, who won the 2006 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for this production, as well as having directed the recent Broadway revival of Company which made its premiere at Cincinnati's Playhouse in the Park, Sweeney Todd features the music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler from an adaptation by Christopher Bond and music supervision and orchestrations by Sarah Travis.
