Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street follows Todd (AKA Benjamin Barker) as he returns to London as a convict from Australia seeking revenge against those who separated him from his wife and child. After setting up business as a Barber above Mrs Lovett’s failing pie shop, Todd’s lust for revenge quickly leads to murder. Prompted by Mrs Lovett, his victims become fresh ingredients for her pies, which boosts sales and inevitably leads to the tragic conclusion.
Featuring one of Sondheim’s darkest and most intricate scores, from the opening chords of the organ prelude to the chilling sound of the factory whistle, the mood remains atmospheric through the choral sounds of ‘The Ballad of Sweeney Todd’ to the more intense ‘Epiphany’. The lyrics are witty and exciting, with comic songs such as ‘By the Sea’ and ‘A Little Priest’ lodged firmly into the musical theatre repertoire.
