Sweeney Todd (Andrew Lloyd Baughman) brandishes his razor.
August 26-31: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is on stage at Warehouse Theater through Sunday, but with a new, face-melting twist. With permission from lyricist and composer Stephen Sondheim, Landless Theatre Company presents the first progressive metal version of the morbid musical. Set in Victorian London, the show follows a vengeful barber who gives his customers the closest shave of their lives, leaving the owner of the pie shop downstairs to dispose of the evidence in a…tasteful fashion.
