This musical thriller by American theatrical genius, Stephen Sondheim, features one of the greatest musical theatre scores ever written. It tells the strange tale of Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, who murders his clients with a straight razor while they lean back in his barber chair, and shuttles the bodies down to his accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, who turns them into much sought-after meat pies. What drives a man to this sort of extreme? What tragedy lies in his dark and mysterious past? This gripping, often comical musical features such classic songs as `Pretty Women`, `Johanna`, `Not While I`m Around`, `By The Sea` and `A Little Priest`. Sweeney Todd won both the Tony and Olivier Awards when it was first produced in 1979, has featured such greats as Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, Michael Cerveris, Michael Ball, Imelda Staunton, Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson on stage, and is now also a major motion picture by Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter and Sasha Baron Cohen.
