U of U Theatre Department: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

In dark, smoggy and feral London, Benjamin Barker has escaped from prison, returning to seek revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him, ravaged his young wife and stole away his daughter. Barker’s private grievance eats away at him, and he gradually turns into a demonic serial killer—his thirst for blood expanding to include his unfortunate customers.

Downstairs, the resourceful Mrs. Lovett soon has the people of London lining up in droves at her pie shop, all due to her mysterious new meat pie recipe. Sondheim’s musical thriller is a chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism.”

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.
