Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

10/09/2010 – 18/09/2010

Year
2010
Author
Stephen Sondheim
Abstract

Expect the unexpected in this riotous and gleeful version of Sondheim’s all-singing, all-slashing musical classic. With a brilliant cast drawn from the Conservatorium to the Science Faculty via the VCA this Sweeney will be as idiosyncratic and off-off-off-Broadway as you can get. The Union Theatre will be transformed, with the band and the singers not confined to the stage and audiences frequently in the thick of the action. That traditional audience warning of “He’s behind you!” will gain a whole new meaning as Sweeney stalks the stalls!
