The barber and his enterprising neighbor plot to slice their way through London's upper crust. Justice will be served – along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills. Directed by Tony Award-winner, John Doyle, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, this dazzling reinvention of a magnificent musical thriller is set to stun theatergoers as never before. "Innovative, intimate and ingenious, this revolutionary new production of Sweeney Todd is an event theatergoers will be talking about for years," claims The Wall Street Journal.
