Sweeney Todd: "Short run theatre-dark musical comedy" London Nightlife Tip by Dabs

London Nightlife: 1,242 reviews and 1,310 photos

We asked the woman at the TKTS booth whether she would recommend Sweeney Todd or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (how's that for two very different plays) and she overwhelmingly recommended this one.

I had never seen Stephen Sondheim's play about the demon barber of Fleet Street so I wasn't quite sure what to expect nor am I sure how it stacks up to other versions. The cast of this one alternate between playing instruments and acting and singing and the blood flows freely throughout the performance.

I can still hear the "Ballad of Sweeney Todd" in my head.....
