Why See Sweeney Todd?
Sondheim's Bloody Masterpiece
Experience the thrills, chills and gore of Stephen Sondheim and High Wheeler's ghoulish musical drama Sweeney Todd during Casa Manana's 2018 Apprentice Program production. Hailed as a landmark gothic musical when it first premiered in 1979, the visceral tale of a demon barber and his quest for vengeance garnered a Tony and Olivier Award for Best New Musical, thanks to its masterfully dissonant, hair-rasing score and unapologetically gruesome story-telling.
At the center of the musical lies the titular barber. After 15 years spent in Australia for a crime he did not commit, Sweeney Todd returns to the filthy streets of London hell bent on revenge against the judge who stole his wife and sent him away. Unfortunately for London's miserable inhabitants, his wrath turns his cutthroat razor towards innocents, whose body parts are neatly disposed of his compatriot Mrs. Lovett's meat pies...
Opening night: 3 August 2018
