ABOUT THE SHOW
This production will turn the award-winning musical inward, looking at it through the lens of Sweeney’s psyche and staging the immersive American Repertory Theater’s OBERON as Fleet Street and London locales, and as a projection of Sweeney Todd’s mind. Audience members, as figments of Sweeney’s imagination, will be first-hand witnesses to the splendor of his destruction and euphoria of his carnage.
Run time: 2 hours, 30 minutes with intermission.
