Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street won itself 8 Tony awards and a further 9 Drama Desk awards when it first opened on Broadway in 1979. The Stephen Sondheim musical is set in 19th century England and tells the story of Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after 15 years transportation on false charges. He teams up with a pie maker, Mrs Lovett, and takes revenge on society by opening a barbershop in which he murders his customers and has them baked into pies in true black-comedic style.
