Stephen Sondheim’s deliciously daring musical masterpiece invites audiences to attend the tale of a father’s delightful descent into darkness, as he seeks to set right the wrongs that wrecked his life. Along the way, they will meet the many shifting residents of Victorian London who all want their own slice of life’s pie.

This production will turn the award-winning musical inward, looking at it through the lens of Sweeney’s psyche and staging the immersive American Repertory Theater’s OBERON as Fleet Street and London locales, and as a projection of Sweeney Todd’s mind. Audience members, as figments of Sweeney’s imagination, will be first-hand witnesses to the splendor of his destruction and euphoria of his carnage.

Please be advised that this production is not suitable for children under the age of 13. This production will depict graphic violence and will deal with several instances of sexual perversion.
