Sweeney Todd depicts the dark tale of the murderous barber whose unfortunate customers end up as gourmet pies. Through pitch-black comedy and stunning terror, this Tony-winning musical fully examines the depths of violence, greed, and obsession. Our production sets the action in 1979 - this is Sweeney as you’ve never seen him before!
