Based on a Victorian “penny dreadful” pulp fiction serial, Sweeney Todd combines chills, suspense and dark humor with a powerful musical score. The story is set in London, where unsuspecting customers of the “demon barber of Fleet Street” get more than a close shave, and patrons of Mrs. Lovett’s downstairs bakehouse get a mysterious new ingredient in the shop’s popular meat pies! By turns shocking and hilarious, this macabre musical masterpiece shows that “revenge is a dish best served cold”!
