- Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
"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."
Adapted for stage by Chichester Festival Theatre, Sweeney Todd will feature distinguished musical performer Michael Ball and Oscar-nominated actress Imelda Staunton for the 2012 West End run, transferring from Chichester.
