Sweeney Todd archiveSondheinm's musical noir based on Christopher Bond's play tells the tale of a barber transported for life for a crime he didn't commit so that the Judge and Beadle can have their wicked way with his beautiful wife.

Recognised by a rival who attempts to blackmail him, Todd kills and Lovett, ever one for a bargin, hatches the plot to dispose of the body and make her little business a success - such lovely pies, such tasty gravy. The Captian who brought him home falls for a beautiful girl who, it turns out, is Todd's daughter now the ward (and intended) of the Judge so the planned revenge must be more swiftly enacted - but in his haste Todd, kills more than he intended and no one wins in the end.
