Some people would KILL for a good musical!
Susan H. Schulman directed the revival of Sweeney Todd on Broadway, for which she received a Tony Award nomination. Now you can see
her vision in our production!
The musical tells the story of Benjamin Barker, alias Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after 15 years' transportation on false charges. When he learns from his former landlady Mrs. Lovett that his wife poisoned herself after being raped by the judge who wrongly transported him (Judge Turpin by name), he vows revenge.
