Sweeney Todd

Closed September 3, 2006

Mr. Cerveris's stunningly realized Sweeney seems destined to haunt the nightmares of anyone who sees him

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Why See Sweeney Todd?

Sondheim's masterpiece is revived in an innovative production originally staged in London in 2004.  Tony Award-winners Patti LuPone (Evita, Anything Goes) and Michael Cerveris (Tommy, Assassins) co-star in one of the most anticipated events of the theater season.

When it premiered in 1979, Sweeney Todd won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. Now, London's "triumphant new production of Stephen Sondheim's musical masterpiece" (London Independent) comes to Broadway. Innovative, intimate and ingenious, this Sweeney "packs a knockout punch" (Daily Telegraph).

The legendary barber, hell-bent on revenge, takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a delicious plot to slice their way through London's upper crust. Justice will be served - along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills.
