by Stephen Sondheim & Hugh Wheeler


A wrongfully convicted man seeks revenge. A struggling business owner does anything to survive. A child is separated from her parents. A woman isn’t believed. A judge abuses his power. A couple is punished for falling in love. A young adult is left to pick up the pieces. Thrilling and dark, funny and terrifying, Sweeney Todd tells the story of a community devouring itself from within and the potential for violence that lies within us all.
