The Curtis is proud to join forces with Southgate Productions (Into the Woods, Bonnie & Clyde) to bring you Stephen Sondheim’s most celebrated musical masterpiece. Winner of eight TONY Awards, This dark and witty tale of love, murder and revenge, takes you to 19th century London. The road to vengeance leads Sweeney Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires a secret ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up! With an intricate score, delightfully devilish lyrics, Sweeney Todd is a thrilling, theatrical treat that sure to shock, awe, and delight!
