SWEENEY TODD
Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts
Oakland, CA
Share this event:


Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, winner of eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical, Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical) was adapted in 1979 from Christopher Bond's play of the same name. The story of a barber driven to madness and revenge after returning to London from wrongful exile in Australia (loosely based on historical events), this musical thriller is a morality tale that masterfully blends Gothic melodrama with a surprising amount of levity and dark humor.

The 2007 film version, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp, has made Sweeney Todd a household name and staple of pop culture. Out of the success of the film has come an opportunity for more staged productions to claim success, and for more theater-going audiences to find out why this musical is considered by many theater and music historians to be Stephen Sondheim's magnum opus.

In YMTC's upcoming production, audiences can look forward to hearing the Bay Area's most talented young performing artists, accompanied by a professional twenty-seven piece orchestra playing Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations.
