Sweeney Todd in Concert

2001 NR

Backed by the acclaimed San Francisco Symphony, supreme thespian George Hearn portrays the titular Sweeney Todd -- Victorian England's murderous barber -- in this outstanding concert version of composer Stephen Sondheim's popular musical. Broadway megastar Patti LuPone plays opposite Hearn in the role of his willing accomplice, the equally twisted Mrs. Lovett, who finds a delicious way to dispose of the corpses.
