Sweeney Todd Costume Rentals
A musical thriller set in 1880, London
Hugh Wheeler, book - Stephen Sondheim, music and lyrics
George Dibdin Pitt's "The Fiend of Fleet Street"
A half-mad barber returns home after escaping from an unjust imprisonment to take vengeance on the judge who sentenced him, then ravished his wife, and now plans to marry his daughter. But Sweeney doesn't limit himself to one victim; he turns his indiscriminate rage against everyone in London by systematically slitting the throats of his customers, whose corpses are then made into meat pies by Todd's enterprising accomplice, Mrs. Lovett. At the end, of course, all the bad ones are properly and gruesomely punished.
