The Worst Pies in Laandan!

With Aaron Tveit and Sutton Foster through May 5, 2024!

Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne theatre is transformed into the streets of Victorian London in this brand new staging of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's legendary musical, starring Broadway royalty Aaron Tveit and Sutton Foster! A macabre tale of a barber who finds a 'creative' use for his customers, the production is directed by Hamilton's Thomas Kail, with choreography from Steven Hoggett..

In typical Sondheim-ian style the story of the Demon Barber of Fleetstreet is laid bare and his grisly collaboration with pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett is exposed in classic songs including 'The Worst Pies in London' and 'Not While I'm Around'.

Debuting on Broadway in 1979, Sweeney Todd scooped up an incredible eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was later adapted for the screen by Tim Burton starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham-Carter in the leads. More recently it has seen various high-profile revivals on both Broadway and in London's West End, most notably Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel starring in the concert version at the Lincoln Center in 2014.

What is the story?

The legendary barber Sweeney Todd, hell-bent on revenge after being transported wrongly for murder, returns to London twenty years later and takes up with his neighbor, the enterprising meat pie-making Mrs. Lovett in a gory plot to slice their way through London's elite. Justice will be served - along with the lush melody, audacious humor, and grisly thrills!

What we thought

Gothic gloomy and marvelous

Aaron Tviet and Sutton Foster are on fine form as the titular Demon Barber of Fleet Street and his besotted enabler, Mrs Lovett (she of the Worst Pies in London)

Stunningly gothic and grisly, spectacular and often very funny, this production from Thomas Kail (of Hamilton fame) is a masterclass in theatre, offering an A+ introduction to one of Stephen Sondheim's most accessible and enjoyable works.
