Details

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 1979 musical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_theatre) thriller (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thriller_(genre)) with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Sondheim) and libretto (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libretto) by Hugh Wheeler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Wheeler). The musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_Bond). Set in 19th century England (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England), the musical tells the story of Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after 15 years' transportation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penal_transportation) on trumped-up charges. When he finds out that his wife poisoned herself after being raped by the judge who transported him, he vows revenge on the judge and, later, other people too. He teams up with a piemaker, Mrs. Lovett, and opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and has them baked into pies.

Ok this is the Tim Burton movie. But we are watching the play.
