Gruesome - horrific, even - Sweeney Todd the Musical is not for the faint of heart. Its title character, otherwise
known as 'The Demon Barber of Fleet Street', is out for revenge. With a reputation for giving the closest shave in London,
Sweeney Todd is determined to end the life of the man who stole his luck and fortune. The serial killing barber has thrilled
and terrified audiences for over two decades, illuminating the dark side of human nature.
Menacing and misanthropic, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is of a different breed than other happy-go-lucky
musicals in London's West End. A brave few theatres - Theatre Royale Drury Lane, The Royal National Theatre and the
Adelphi - have staged this well-known horror story.

Adapted for stage by the famous American composer Stephen Sondheim in the 1980s, Sweeney Todd the Musical has walked
away with accolades from both the Tony Awards and the Laurence Olivier Awards. Based on a character dating back to the 19th
century, Sweeney Todd is a morally dubious legend among legends.
Robbed of everything he ever loved by the corrupt Judge Turpin, Benjamin Barker, a convict who's escaped the penal settlement
of Australia, returns to London. Roaming the streets, he finds his way to his old home and sheds his former identity, transforming
into Sweeney Todd, the soon to be infamous barber.
Ready to avenge his wife Lucy, Sweeney Todd sets out to kill Judge Turpin. Working his way through the throats of London's
rich and miserable masses, Todd and his pie-maker accomplice, Mrs. Nellie Lovett, set up a flourishing 'business': the corpses
of Todd's victims provide frightful pie fillings. The twisted tale is punctuated by signature Sweeney Todd songs like
'No Place like London' and 'The Ballad of Sweeney Todd', among other iconic musical
