The Department of Theatre presents the musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” The play takes place at 8 p.m. on Friday, and Saturday, Feb. 24 and 25, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26 and at 8 p.m. on Wednesday through Saturday, March 1,2,3 and 4. Based on the book by Hugh Wheeler with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, the musical depicts the infamous tale of Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, who returns to nineteenth century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up.
