Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece musical returns in a fresh new outdoor production by Springfield Contemporary Theatre. Featuring Kim Crosby as Mrs. Lovett. Returned to London following a wrongful banishment, barber Sweeney Todd’s thirst for vengeance against the corrupt judge who sent him away leads him on a murderous spree. Aided by his downstairs neighbor, baker Mrs. Lovett, the two concoct an unappetizing scheme as they terrorize the city. Featuring the songs “The Worst Pies in London,” “A Little Priest,” “Johanna,” "Pretty Women" and “Not While I’m Around,” this deliciously dark musical serves horror with a slice of humor. Contains some violent content.
Three weekends of performances: September 16-18, 22-25, 29-October 2, evenings at 8 PM at SCT's Backlot outdoor theatre, 2025 E Chestnut Expressway. Call 417-831-8001 for tickets. Special "pay what you can" on Thursday nights.
