Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd—Stephen Sondheim’s twisted story of love, revenge, and infamous meat pies—just before Halloween!

In the dark heart of Victorian-era London, Sweeney Todd, a wrongly exiled barber, seeks retribution against the lecherous Judge Turpin, the architect of his ruin. With a razor-sharp thirst for vengeance, Todd’s path converges with the cunning pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett. Together, they form a macabre partnership, crafting meat pies that satiate more than just hunger. But the relentless pursuit of justice takes a turn as Todd’s razor weaves a chilling narrative.

Known for its biting lyrics and its dazzling score that mimics the soundtrack of a classic horror film, the words and music intertwine to foreshadow the harrowing ending of The Demon of Fleet Street—and revenge becomes a dish served hot as the line between justice and savagery blurs in the shadows of London’s cobblestone streets.

Sung in English with English supertitles.
