It is with deep regret that, following the recent advice from the government regarding covid-19, we have decided that our production of Sweeney Todd will not be able to go ahead as planned this year.
We are pleased, however, to be able to announce that the production has now been rescheduled to 13th to 17th April 2021 (dates may be subject to change).
We apologise for the disruption and thank you for your support during these uncertain times.
We will be in touch directly with all ticket holders in the near future to arrange transfer of tickets or refunds. You will appreciate we are very busy at the moment and would ask you not to contact us until you receive our communication.
Performances – Tuesday 13th April to Saturday 17th April 2021 – booking will reopen soon. Dates are subject to change.
‘The history of the world, my sweet, is who gets eaten and who gets to eat.’
In a corrupt, industrial London, while the entitled abuse their power, desperate workers and opportunists resort to whatever means necessary to survive. Quietly, in Fleet Street, one man – broken by grief and injustice at the hands of the ‘privileged few’ – executes his juicy revenge on a society that has failed him.
LOS Musical Theatre is excited to bring the iconic, enraged barber to Lewes Town Hall, along with his legendary accomplice Mrs Lovett and her deliciously questionable pies.
When it opened on Broadway in 1979 Sweeney Todd scooped no fewer than eight Tony Awards. This was followed a year later in London with the Olivier for Best New Musical and every revival since has enjoyed enormous success.
Stephen Sondheim’s mesmerising music and thought-provoking lyrics underscore this frighteningly resonant, relevant masterpiece. It bakes a succulent recipe of comedy, tragedy and thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat, hungry for more.
