Saddleworth Musical Society presents
the infamous tale of Sweeney Todd
One of the darkest musicals ever written,
Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller
is the
unsettling tale of the infamous demon
barber of Fleet Street.
An unjustly exiled barber returns to 19th
century London seeking vengeance against
the lecherous judge Turpin, who framed
him and ravaged his young wife. The road
to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, the
resourceful proprietress of a failing pie
shop, above which he opens his new barber
practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck changes when
Todd's tonsorial activities inspires her to
make a small adjustment to her pie recipe,
which has the people of London lining up,
and so the story unfolds.”
Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen
Sondheim’s most perfect score,
Sweeney
Todd
is lush, operatic, and full of soaring
beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning
terror. It’s one of the significant
achievements of the American musical
theatre of the last fifty years, and the high
water mark of Sondheim’s six remarkable
collaborations with director Harold Prince.
