About Sweeney Todd
This well known and often strangely beloved tale of devious machinations, murder, mayhem and revenge also is a tale of love, loss and what drives a person to commit the most violent of crimes. Staging such a musical in our little 35 seat intimate space allows for a very unique and new experience of this often bombastic, in your face show. Instead of having the show flung at you from a large stage, you will get to feel like you are on Fleet Street, wandering with the rest of the street crowd as they weave this tale around you at every turn. Who knows, you may even be offered a shave by Mr. Todd himself. Although we wouldn't recommend saying yes!
Join us October 26th - November 18th for an experience you won't soon forget of the incomparable Sweeney Todd!
