Why See Sweeney Todd?

Shaw Theatre gets gory!

Shaw Festival Theatre presents the deliciously dark and twisted musical thriller Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece debuted on Broadway in 1979, where it scooped up an incredible eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was later adapted for the screen by Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter in the leads. More recently it has seen various high-profile revivals on both Broadway and in London's West End, most notably Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel starring in the concert version at the Lincoln Center in 2014.

The legendary barber Sweeney Todd, hell-bent on revenge after being transported wrongly for murder,returns to London twenty years later and takes up with his neighbour, the enterprising meat pie-making Mrs Lovett in a gory plot to slice their way through London's elite. Justice will be served - along with lush melody, audacious humor and grisly thrills.
