Connecticut Rep Theatre’s “Sweeney Todd” Comes to Jorgensen Theatre
June 21 @ 8:00 am - July 1 @ 5:00 pm
Peter Flynn directs “Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller in Concert” (June 21 – July 1), the Tony-Award winning tale of love, murder, and revenge set against the backdrop of 19th century London, as the second show of the Summer. CRT Artistic Director Terrence Mann performs as the title character (Sweeney Todd) alongside Broadway Veterans Liz Larsen (Nellie Lovett) of Broadway’s “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” “The Most Happy Fella,” and “Hairspray,” and Andrea Burns (Beggar Woman) of Broadway’s “On Your Feet” and “In The Heights.”
Three-time Tony Award-nominee and Artistic Director Terrence Mann returns to the CRT stage in the Tony-Award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the backdrop of 19th century London. Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to London seeking vengeance against the lecherous Judge Turpin who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, the resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires a new ingredient for her meat pies that has the people of London lining up – and the carnage has only just begun! This chilling masterpiece is sure to thrill and delight audiences in a concert staging following the style of CRT’s successful presentation of “Les Misérables: A Musical Celebration”.
