The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

When it premiered in 1979, "Sweeney Todd" won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. The legendary barber, hell-bent on revenge, takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a delicious plot to slice their way through London's upper crust. Justice will be served - along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills. PG-13
