Times are hard in 1846 London and one must make do. So Mrs Lovett adds something extra to the meat pies she peddles on Fleet Street. The secret ingredient: freshly murdered victims of her partner in crime, barber Sweeney Todd.

Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim refashions a macabre tale into a musical masterwork in this dazzling performance of the 1979 Broadway hit originally staged by Harold Prince.

In her Tony-winning role (one of eight the show earned, including Best Musical), Angela Lansbury plays Mrs Lovett. George Hearn turns his stage role of twisted Sweeney Todd into an Emmy-winning triumph. The score coils around itself in ever-tightening spirals. The lines ripple with black humor and madness. Enter Sweeney's tonsorial parlor. Attend the tale.
