MacMS is proud to present Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the macabre horror musical of revenge, obsession, corruption, deceit, murder, blood, and pies.
Written by Hugh Wheeler (book), and Stephen Sondheim (music and lyrics), and based on Christopher Bond’s 1973 play of the same name, this Tony, Drama Desk and Olivier Award winning horror musical debuted in 1979 on Broadway and 1980 on the West End and has since spawned numerous revivals.
MacMS' 2016 production directed by Aarin Starkey will present a ‘modernised’ retelling of the much loved musical masterpiece. We are giving Sweeney a makeover, from the vengeful Edwardian barber, to the angsty hipster man-stylist, depicting his thirst for revenge and how it manifests into a distaste for all of humankind.
