After the immeasurable success of fitzTheatre's Jesus Christ Superstar in 2005, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's spine-chillingly gruesome and squeamishly sophisticated musical thriller SWEENEY TODD is coming to Fitz!
The stylishly gruesome heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and callous culinary crime surrounds the story of Sweeney Todd, a wrongly exiled barber who returns to 19th Century London to seek revenge on the lecherous Judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His bloodthirsty craving for revenge soon swells to embrace his unsuspecting customers, while the resourceful proprietress of the Pie Shop downstairs coincidentally comes up trumps with a mysterious new pie-recipe...
Macabre, visceral, gruesome and chillingly sophisticated, Sweeney Todd will enrich your nightmares more deliciously than you could ever imagine!
