On the foggy streets of London, a killer is on the loose. The demon barber of Fleet Street takes the stage in Center Stage Productions’ 2013 performance of the hit Broadway musical Sweeney Todd in Neumann University’s Fred P. Meagher Theatre. The show runs from Thursday, August 8, to Sunday, August 11.
Debuting in 1979 on Broadway, Sweeney Todd features a chilling, suspenseful and heart-pounding musical ride with music and lyrics from Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler. This Tony Award winner for best musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond.
Set in 19th century London, the musical relates the infamous tale of an unjustly exiled barber who returns to London to seek revenge on the lecherous judge who framed him. Sophisticated and macabre, Sweeney Todd encompasses a fun mix of intense drama and dark humor. Audiences follow Todd’s journey of revenge that expands to some of his unfortunate customers while Mrs. Lovett, the proprietress of the pie shop downstairs, has the people of London lining up to tastes her mysterious new meat pies.
The production is a collaboration between Center Stage Productions and the Delaware County Symphony’s chamber members. Performances run August 8-10 at 8 p.m. with a matinee performance on August 11 at 2:00 p.m. General admission is $15.
