Sweeney Todd in Concert: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in Concert | 2001
Performances of Stephen Sondheim's musical "Sweeney Todd," about a London barber who delights in killing his customers, and his companion Mrs. Lovett, who helps him dispose of the evidence as "meat pies." Years ago, the corrupt and lecherous Judge Turpin ousted Sweeney Todd, a celebrated barber, from London. The judge seduced Todd's wife, trumped up false charges against Todd, and then took custody of his infant daughter. After returning to London to make Turpin pay for his deeds, Todd is befriended by Mrs. Lovett, a pie shop owner who is "creative" in finding ingredients for her culinary delights. Together, the duo of Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett go on a rampage in the name of profit and revenge.
