An unjustly exiled barber returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers; and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe! Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor: audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
The historic Fulton Theatre--the nation's longest consecutively operating theatre--presents Sweeney Todd in a full-scale production that features a cast of 28 and a 17-piece on-stage orchestra. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see Sondheim's musical masterpiece the way it should be done, all while surrounded by the grandeur of ornate Victorian architecture.
