Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Hugh Wheeler
From an adaptation by Christopher Bond

In Victorian England, a vengeful Sweeney Todd has just been released from jail for a crime he did not commit. With his dazzlingly demented accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, the "demon barber of Fleet Street" cooks up a hilariously macabre revenge scheme in this crafty, comedic, and captivating musical, which stars Broadway favorites and Tony Award winners Brian Stokes Mitchell (Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime, King Hedley II) and Christine Baranski (The Real Thing, Rumors, TV's "Cybill"). The show won eight 1979 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and also captured the 1979 Grammy for best cast album.
