Anger, lies, love, lust, and revenge run amok in Victorian London after Sweeney Todd returns from wrongful exile. Hell-bent on vengeance with nothing to lose, Todd re-opens his barbering business above a failing pie shop in his former family home. He and his doting accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, successfully undermine the dastardly upper class and the judge who gave his sentence while feeding them toothsome meat pies. Demonically demotic songs by Stephen Sondheim add a touch of whimsy to this thriller. The Woodstock Playhouse Productions Professional Summer Cast presents “Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” Thursday August 13 to Sunday August 23. (845) 679-6900; Woodstockplayhouse.org.
