Now staged in an innovative modern minimalistic style.
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!

I was SO impressed! I loved what you did with it! I found myself moved to tears at times. All the actors were terrific but I was especially enchanted with Daniella's performance as Mrs. Lovett. I am recommending this play to everyone! Thank you!
The singing was exceptional! The set was very cool!
The singing was beautiful and the acting was amazing. The guardian was beyond disturbing, especially when he is fighting his desire for Joannah. Props to the actor who played him.
