Sweeney Todd

Memorial Opera House
Address: 104 Indiana Ave, Valparaiso, IN 46383, USA
In this infamous tale Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife.  The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice.  Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her pies that has the people of London lining up…and the carnage has only just begun!  The Memorial Opera House invites you to attend this dark, witty and Tony Award winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the background of 19th century London.

    Book by JAMES LAPINE

    Orchestrations by JONATHAN TUNICK

    DIRECTED BY ANDY LEAHY

    MUSICAL DIRECTION BY LAURA CARNS

    James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, work... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

    The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later...with disastrous results.

    One of Sondheim's most popular works, "Into the Woods" is a musically sophisticated show with both lighthearted moments hearkening childhood innocence and a myriad of nods to dark comedy.
