Returning to 19th century London after 15 years in exile, Benjamin Barker hears that his wife is dead and his daughter held captive. Aided by scheming Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney Todd emerges, a man journeying from hope to despair to insanity, wreaking revenge with a slice of his razor. In steampunk style, this musical thriller by Stephen Sondheim will leave you wary about the contents of your next meat pie.
