MCT's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Leading Edge Academy
18700 N Porter Rd
"Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" is a 1979 musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. The musical won the 1979 Tony Award for Best Musical.
Our version, set in Sweeney's mind, tells the story of a man who was wrongfully imprisoned, escaped, and is now seeking his revenge upon the dastardly judge who put him there. Slicing the throats of whomever gets in his way! When the question of what to do with the bodies presents itself, it's Mrs. Lovett who suggests they take the victims and make them the prime ingredient for her meat pies!
With classic broadway songs such as “Johanna,” “A Little Priest,” and “My Friends;” Sweeney Todd is debatably one of Sondheim’s best works!
This show is not suitable for young children. 14 and up is recommended.
