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.
