In dark, smoggy and feral London, Benjamin Barker has escaped from prison, returning to seek revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him, ravaged his young wife, and stole away his daughter. Barker’s private grievance eats away at him, and he gradually turns into a demonic serial killer—his thirst for blood expanding to include his unfortunate customers.  Downstairs, the resourceful Mrs. Lovett soon has the people of London lining up in droves at her pie shop, all due to her mysterious new meat pie recipe. Sondheim’s musical thriller is a chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “barber-ism.”

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score.

Blair Howell of www.broadwayworld.com calls the Department of Theatre’s Sweeney Todd a “deliciously macabre nightmare…a true theatrical thriller.”

Reviewer Jocelyn Gibbons encourages patrons to “Attend the Tale of Sweeney Todd” in her review of the production on www.UtahTheatreBloggers.com.

Megan Pederson of www.BroadwayWorld.com’s Student Center says the Department of Theatre’s Sweeney Todd is a “spine chilling production…sure to make you squirm in your seat…This is a production you won’t want to miss!”
