THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF A MUSICAL MASTERPIECE!
Starring Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton, this ‘wickedly funny’ (Guardian) production of Stephen Sondheim’s ‘magnificent masterpiece’ (Evening Standard) is set to thrill West End audiences from March 2012.
A five star, sell-out smash hit at Chichester Festival Theatre with standing ovations every night, audiences and critics agree – this ‘mesmerising and enticing’ (Financial Times) musical is unmissable.
Laced with dark humour, dazzling wit and an infectious score, it tells of Sweeney Todd’s return to London after years of false imprisonment, and his savage quest for justice and retribution. Aided and abetted by pie-shop owner, Mrs Lovett, he sets out to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family many years before..
Directed by Jonathan Kent and designed by Anthony Ward, Sweeney Todd comes to London for a strictly limited season. Don’t miss MICHAEL BALL giving ‘the performance of his life’ (Daily Mail) with the ‘show stopping’ IMELDA STAUNTON (Mail on Sunday) in what promises to be the theatrical event of the year.
