Strand, London WC2R 0NS
Seating chart & directions
Stephen Sondheim's musical masterpiece is set in darkest Victorian England and tells the infamous tale of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street , who forms an enterprising relationship with Mrs Lovett, the proprietress of the downstairs pie shop.
Set amongst London's seedy side streets and laced with Sondheim's characteristically brilliant wit and dark humour, the musical depicts Sweeney Todd's savage quest for justice and retribution after years of false imprisonment. Aided and abetted by the pie-shop owner, Mrs Lovett, he sets out to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family. Sweeney Todd is an original blend of deliciously black humour, horror, thrills and lyrical eloquence.
Sweeney Todd offers a fascinating portrait of a man driven to madness by injustice.
