Attend the Tale of Sweeney Todd

By November 2, 2018December 27th, 2021No Comments

Attend the dark, witty and Tony Award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge. Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tonys (including Best Musical) for its Broadway premiere. Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s tasty, thrilling theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world.

In this infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 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!

Sweet Tea Shakespeare is serving up a rich and saucy production of this flavorful and “full-bodied” Broadway classic at Fayetteville Pie Company. Expect notes of peppery revenge, despair, and cat to linger on your palate as you savor the experience of this show.
