Set in 19th century London, this frightening musical thriller tells the gruesome, grisly tale of the murderous barber Sweeney Todd who returns from exile to seek revenge on the judge who falsely put him away.  Teaming up with Mrs. Lovett, the owner of a struggling pie shop, his thirst for blood expands to include his unfortunate customers and the whole human race.  And Mrs. Lovett finds some new ingredients for her savory pies. Winner of the 1979 Tony Award for Best Musical, Sondheim's masterpiece includes the deliciously wicked songs "A Little Priest," "Pretty Women," and "Not While I'm Around."  Everyone seeks revenge, but seldom as well as Sweeney Todd.
