SWEENEY TODD

AT PLAYMAKERS REP

Sound Design Concept

While the focus was on amplification of musicians and actors, we did play around a bit with steam-era textures.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 1979 musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. The musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond. Sweeney Todd opened on Broadway in 1979 and in the West End in 1980.
