Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd

TONY AND OLIVIER AWARD-WINNING ACTRESS LEA SALONGA (MISS SAIGON) RETURNS TO SINGAPORE TO STAR IN ONE OF THE GREATEST MUSICALS OF ALL TIME– SWEENEY TODD. THIS TASTY, THRILLING, THEATRICAL TREAT HAS SIMULTANEOUSLY SHOCKED, AWED AND DELIGHTED AUDIENCES ACROSS THE WORLD SINCE IT FIRST OPENED ON BROADWAY, WHERE IT WON EIGHT TONY AWARDS (INCLUDING FOR BEST MUSICAL).

2019 CELEBRATES THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THIS SPECTACULAR MUSICAL, WRITTEN AND COMPOSED BY THE LEGENDARY STEPHEN SONDHEIM – WINNER OF AN ACADEMY AWARD, EIGHT GRAMMY AWARDS, EIGHT TONY AWARDS, A PULITZER PRIZE AND A LAURENCE OLIVIER AWARD. SOME OF HIS BEST KNOWN WORKS INCLUDE WEST SIDE STORY, COMPANY, PACIFIC OVERTURES, SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE (1984) AND INTO THE WOODS.

THIS IS THE INFAMOUS TALE OF AN UNJUSTLY ACCUSED BARBER WHO RETURNS FROM EXILE SEEKING VENGEANCE AGAINST THE LECHEROUS JUDGE TURPIN WHO FRAMED HIM. THE ROAD TO REVENGE LEADS SWEENEY TODD TO MRS. LOVETT, A RESOURCEFUL PROPRIETRESS OF A FAILING PIE SHOP. MRS. LOVETT’S LUCK SHARPLY SHIFTS WHEN TODD’S THIRST FOR BLOOD INSPIRES THE INTEGRATION OF AN INGREDIENT INTO HER MEAT PIES THAT HAS THE PEOPLE LINING UP… AND THAT’S JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE CARNAGE!

SWEENEY TODD WHICH WILL BE STAGED IN SINGAPORE FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME THIS NOVEMBER. DON’T MISS THIS MASTERPIECE THAT IS SURE TO BOTH THRILL AND DELIGHT AUDIENCES.
