Come hear the tale of Sweeney Todd!
An indisputable masterpiece by America’s greatest living Broadway composer and lyricist, Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd is a heart-pounding thriller set on the seedy side streets of 19th century London. Filled with diabolical humor and extraordinary music, this eight-time Tony Award-winning musical tells the tale of an exiled barber’s quest to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family by a lecherous judge. Featuring a brilliant score that includes “Pretty Women,” “A Little Priest,” and “Not While I’m Around,” Sweeney Todd is a beautiful, soaring black comedy filled with stunning terror that will leave you gasping!
Sweeney Todd is presented in its entirety as it debuted on Broadway in 1979. The show includes adult themes and situations not suitable for young children. Parental discretion is advised for ages 13 and under. For questions regarding content, please contact the HTC Box Office at 602-252-8497.
