Sweeney Todd

  • Stage 773 1225 W Belmont Ave Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

Based on the Victorian era serial, this Tony and Olivier-winning musical tells the tale of London barber Sweeney Todd, torn from his family and exiled for 15 years on a miscarriage of justice who returns home to a city as corrupt as when he left. Hell-bent on revenge after learning the agonizing fate of his wife and daughter, he takes up his razors to dish out a brutal recipe of justice with the help of infatuated and enterprising meat pie-maker Nellie Lovett in this spine-chilling musical masterpiece of obsession, retribution and culinary curiosity. Sweeney Todd is the latest collaboration between Michael Weber and Doug Peck who, together, brought Pal Joey and Assassins to the Porchlight stage, both productions being nominated for the Best Production – Musical Jeff Award.
