Sweeney Todd:

The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Posted at
and last updated

Two men arrive in London, one young and hopeful, the other dark and brooding.

Anthony Hope and Sweeney Todd – a barber by trade – are about to become inextricably linked in a tale of love and revenge, with a beautiful girl who sings through her barred window, a beggar woman with a mysterious secret and the irrepressible Mrs Lovett whose pie shop becomes the surprising scene of the crime.

Darkly comic and brilliantly unsettling – one of Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated musicals.
