Sweeney Todd is the story of a barber who was unjustly imprisoned by a salacious judge who then had his way with the convict’s wife. Years later, Sweeney returns to London to claim revenge. There he teams up with Mrs. Lovett, a meat-pie baker, in an insane partnership intended to bring him vengeance and her, riches.Featuring “Johanna,” “Not While I’m Around” and “The Worst Pies in London,” Sweeney Todd is Steven Sondheim at his best.Cast: Featuring Michigan native and Tony Award-winner Karen Ziemba as Mrs. Lovett and Stephen Powell as Sweeney ToddDirector: Ron Danielshttps://michiganopera.org/season-schedule/sweeney-todd/Public Onsale : Mon, 12 Aug 2019 at 10:00 AM
