A Brechtian take on a Sondheim classic. After being wrongfully imprisoned by the corrupt justice system, Sweeney Todd returns home to London to seek his revenge and save his daughter, Johanna. Aided by his meat-pie baking neighbor Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney comes to a much darker conclusion – we all deserve to die. Witness Moonbox’s new take on the modern myth, the parable of power, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
Approximate run time: Sweeney Todd plays in 2 hours 45 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.
