About Sweeney Todd
Following sell-out success at Chichester Festival Theatre, Sweeney Todd transfers to the Adelphi Theatre for a limited season.
Widely acknowledged as Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd stars distinguished musical performer Michael Ball in the title role and Oscar-nominated actress Imelda Staunton as the devoted Mrs Lovett.
Set amongst London’s seedy side streets and laced with Stephen Sondheim’s characteristically brilliant wit and dark humour, Sweeney Todd the musical depicts "The Demon Barber" Todd’s savage quest for justice and retribution after years of false imprisonment. Aided and abetted by the pie-shop owner, Mrs Lovett, he sets out to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family.
The critics have acclaimed Sweeney Todd as ‘one of the greatest musicals of all time’ (Daily Telegraph) with unanimous praise for the ‘dynamite pairing’ (Variety) of Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton as ‘two of Britain’s finest stage talents at the peak of their game’ (Daily Express).
Director Jonathan Kent’s ‘dazzling, vivid and exhilarating production’ (Time Out) of Sweeney Todd has re-invented ‘Stephen Sondheim’s towering masterpiece’ (Independent) creating ‘an absolute triumph that has audiences rising to their feet in delight’ (The Times).
The Sweeney Todd cast also includes John Bowe, Peter Polycarpou, Robert Burt, Gillian Kirkpatrick, Lucy May Barker, Luke Brady, James McConville and Simeon Truby.
The show has a strictly limited season to 22nd September so book your Sweeney Todd tickets today for one of the most acclaimed shows of the year.
