Directed by Giles Gartrell – Mills
18 NOVEMBER – 20 DECEMBER 2014
A powerful story of lust, murder, love, retribution – and some remarkably tasty pies!
Combining violent and erotic horror with social commentary and a poignant love story, Stephen Sondheim’s musical retelling of the legendary fable of the murderous ‘demon barber’ – part melodrama, part Grand Guignol blood-fest – is by turns shocking, intensely moving and brutally funny.
With its compelling book, dazzling lyrics and glorious score, SWEENEY TODD is one of the great theatrical creations. br [button text=”PHOTOS/PRESS” link=”http://newtheatre.org.au/sweeney-todd-trailer/” style=”link” size=”h3″ target=”_self” display=”inline” icon=”no”]
