| SWEENEY TODD
|The musical follows the Demon Barber of Fleet Street as he returns to London as a convict from Australia seeking revenge against those who separated him from his wife and child. On arriving in London he meets Mrs Lovett, who owns a failing pie shop and recognises Todd as his real name Benjamin Barker. She quickly tells him his wife Lucy died at the hands of Judge Turpin, who keeps his daughter Joanna locked up as his ward, intending to marry her. As she reveals his shaving razor his arm ‘feels complete again’ and he sets up his barber business above Mrs Lovett’s shop. Seeking revenge leads to murder, and prompted by Mrs Lovett his victims become fresh ingredients for her pies which boost sales and lead to the tragic conclusion.
Featuring one of Sondheim’s darkest and most intricate scores Jonathan Tunick provides fresh orchestrations which resonates around the theatre. 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.
