A unique musical by Broadway bard Stephen Sondheim about a cruel revenge of the London barber Benjamin Barker aka Sweeney Todd for an unjust exile and isolation from his beloved family. 

After returning to London, Sweeney reopens his former barber shop above Mrs Lovett's bakery. Where do Todd's customers vanish to and where does Mrs Lovett suddenly get material for her tasty meat buns? An unusual musical, made famous by Tim Burton's film adaptation with Johnny Depp in the title role, comes to the professional Czech stage for the first time!

Premiere on 27 January 2018 at the Black Box.
