Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

September 14 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$108

Once, there was a barber who had it all — a happy life, a beautiful wife. But it all ended in a savage act of betrayal. Enter Sweeney Todd, “the demon barber of Fleet Street”.

From the maestro of musical theatre Stephen Sondheim, and the storytelling genius of Hugh Wheeler, comes a gripping tale of tragedy and revenge set in the depths of London. Sweeney Todd poses a suave and perilous figure with his rising desire for vengeance. Alongside the beguiling and eccentric Mrs. Lovett, they hatch a twisted plan — equal parts genius and ghastly. Mrs Lovett’s reputation of serving the best pies in town may be short-lived as Sweeney’s thirst for vengeance teeters on the razor’s edge.

Considered one of the most powerful, dramatic and theatrical horror tales ever set to music, this masterpiece of musical theatre will leave hearts racing and spines tingling long after the final curtain falls.

Tickets $35 to $140
