Disgusting in a good way
Disgusting and mortifying, in a good way, Sweeney Todd is certainly set to turn some tummies inside out with this eerily amusing musical experience. Set during the British Victorian times, the plot revolves around a mentally deranged, murderous barber who gets his kicks out of secretly killing his customers. A local meat pie-maker on the brink of bankruptcy teams up with the killer barber, saving her pie business with meat supplied by the barbershop – yes, THAT meat! The character of Sweeney Todd first haunted its victims in a Penny Dreadful book back in the 1800s, eventually becoming a well-known Victorian urban legend. In 1973, British playwright Christopher Bond wrote his own adaptation of the famous Penny Dreadful. His version focused on Todd’s psychological background as a vengeful victim whose motives are a result of a traumatic past. Six years later, American composer Stephen Sondheim launched a musical based on Bond’s version of the killer barber. The musical was a massive success, bringing Todd's story to haunt a whole new generation.
