For the first time since 1980, Broadway audiences will experience Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award®–winning score as it was performed in the original production—with Jonathan Tunick’s classic 26-piece orchestration on an epic scale. Tony-winning director Thomas Kail helms the return of this epic musical thriller, starring Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford. Previews begin February 26.
Sondheim’s masterpiece is a savory Victorian melodrama.
Returned to London following a wrongful banishment, barber Sweeney Todd’s thirst for vengeance against the corrupt judge who sent him away leads him on a murderous spree. Aided by his downstairs neighbor, baker Mrs. Lovett, the two concoct an unappetizing scheme as they terrorize the city.
Featuring the songs “The Worst Pies in London,” “A Little Priest,” “Johanna” and “Not While I’m Around,” this deliciously dark musical serves horror with a slice of humor.
Information subject to change prior to opening night.
Performances are schedule to begin February 26, 2023.
