About Sweeney Todd on Broadway

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd before it concludes its Broadway run on May 5. Fleet Street is back on Broadway with Tony Award winners Aaron Tveit and Sutton Foster. Get Sweeney Todd tickets on TodayTix, and experience the Tony-winning revival that's a New York Times Critic's Pick!

Revenge is a dish best served hot in Sweeney Todd, a deliciously dark story of murder, obsession, and love. Take a seat — but maybe not in the barber’s chair — for Tveit’s highly anticipated return to Broadway as a villainous barber, with Foster as pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, his devious accomplice in a bloody vengeance plot.

Hear Stephen Sondheim’s beloved score, with tunes like “A Little Priest” and “Johanna,” come alive via a “deliciously lush” (New York Theatre Guide) 26-piece orchestra and the most chilling, thrilling performances this side of Fleet Street. See why the New York Times calls the baked-to-perfection result “ravishingly sung, deeply emotional and strangely hilarious.”

You may have seen the Sweeney Todd movie or past productions, but you’ve never seen the show served up in its full, original glory. Mrs. Lovett may sing about the worst pies in London, but this Tony Award-winning musical promises to be one of the best shows on Broadway, earning eight 2023 Tony nods including Best Musical Revival. The revival ultimately won for its lighting and sound design.

More information about Sweeney Todd on Broadway

The thriller musical is titled in full Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. The show, with a book by Hugh Wheeler and a score by Stephen Sondheim, has appeared on Broadway three times before. The world-premiere production opened in 1979 and won eight Tony Awards out of nine nominations, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Actor and Actress awards for Len Cariou and Angela Lansbury — Sondheim's personal choices to play Todd and Lovett.

The first Broadway revival was in 1989, and the second in 2005. Both were nominated for Best Revival, and their respective stars — Bob Gunton and Beth Fowler, and Michael Cerveris and Patti LuPone — all got acting nominations. This revival of Sweeney Todd on Broadway followed in its predecessors' footsteps when original stars Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford got nods!

What to watch for

  • This Sweeney Todd revival features Jonathan Tunick's orchestrations, as the original Broadway production did. Neither of the previous Sweeney Todd revivals used the full, original orchestrations.
  • The show poster uses the same font and color for the musical's title as the original Broadway poster.
  • Barber refuted? Sweeney Todd is a mini-Hamilton reunion: That show's director, Thomas Kail, and music supervisor, Alex Lacamoire, hold the same jobs for this production.
  • Groban is such a big Sweeney Todd fan that he named his dog after the title character.
  • The Sweeney Todd musical is based on a same-named 1973 play by Christopher Bond, but the title character actually first appeared in a Victorian-era serial fiction story called The String of Pearls. His story was immediately adapted into a few melodramas in the mid-to-late 1800s, too; one of those premiered on Broadway in 1924.
  • When Sweeney Todd first opened on Broadway, the then-director of The Metropolitan Opera reportedly said he would have produced the show there given the opportunity. He saw Sweeney Todd's high-drama tale as "a modern American opera." Though the Met didn't end up producing the show, lots of other opera companies have.
  • Sweeney Todd is the latest in a string of recent Sondheim revivals. His musicals Assassins and Company both played in New York in 2021, followed by Into the Woods and Merrily We Roll Along in 2022. Plus, the last production of Sweeney Todd in New York (an immersive Off-Broadway show in a theatre converted into a pie shop) was in 2017, alongside a Broadway revival of Sunday in the Park with George.
