This multi-award-winning musical, with lyrics and score by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, tells the story of masterful barber Sweeney Todd as he returns to London to take his revenge against the corrupt judge who destroyed his life.

Together, they sing their way through murder and mischief to the top of the food chain in this morbidly funny musical thriller.
