Anthony Warlow and Gina Riley star in the grisly and entertaining theatrical event of the year. Life Like Company proudly brings Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s masterful musical thriller Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street to Sydney and Melbourne for a limited season in June 2019.
Sweeney Todd (Anthony Warlow), an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett (Gina Riley), a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice.
Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up…and the carnage has only just begun!
Life Like Company is thrilled to celebrate this Tony Award-winning show’s 40th anniversary in 2019 with a gruesome and ghoulish new production.
