Direct from a sell-out season at Chichester Festival Theatre, where it received multiple five-star reviews and standing ovations, Jonathan Kent’s production of Sweeney Todd is unmissable.
Laced with dark humour, dazzling wit and an infectious score Sondheim’s musical thriller has been hailed as ‘a masterwork’ (The Sunday Times) and ‘wickedly funny’ (Guardian).
Set in nineteenth century London 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. Combining a gory sensibility with elements of English music hall, the production offers a fascinating portrait of a man driven to madness by injustice and grief.
