Presented by: Phoenix Productions Phoenix Productions presents the musical thriller that changed Broadway, Sweeney Todd. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of a murderous barber and his culinary partner in crime is based on a true tale of an unjustly exiled barber who escapes and returns to 19th century London seeking revenge... and finds madness instead. Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd is full of black humor, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments. Audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next. Join us in November when Phoenix Productions, Central Jersey's award-winning community theatre company, demonstrates what "Cutting Edge" Theater is all about.
