Sweeney Todd is a Tony Award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the backdrop of 19th century London.
The show has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony’s, (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere. Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world.
Sweeney Todd was a more mature production than Summer Musical Enterprise’s usual family-friendly fare. It featured a cast of 24 performers — none of them children — which was quite a departure from the previous summer’s all-ages cast of 70!
