Returning from 15 years in exile with a score to settle, Benjamin Barker takes on a new persona: Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Inhabiting the barbershop he once owned and rekindling his close friendship with Mrs. Lovett, the colorful owner of the pie shop below, Sweeney embarks on a bloody journey of revenge and terror. Soon throats are cut, human-meat pies are made, and the secrets of 15 years ago are revealed. In Sweeney Todd, Sondheim's timeless score traces the descent of a man into madness, with deliciously thrilling results.
