Palm Beach Dramaworks “Sweeney Todd” Package

Don’t miss Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, the brilliant Tony Award-winning musical thriller by Stephen Sondheim (music and lyrics) and Hugh Wheeler (book), which opens at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre on July 14th.  This witty tale of a throat-slitting barber and his enterprising accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, who grinds his victims into meat pies, runs through August 6.

The original production of Sweeney Todd was directed by Harold Prince, and starred Angela Lansbury and Len Cariou, all of whom won Tony Awards. The show, which opened on Broadway on March 1,1979 and ran 557 performances, received eight Tonys in all, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book. That premiere production, at the cavernous Uris (now Gershwin) Theatre was huge in size and scope. There have since been countless productions of Sweeney Todd all over the world, on stages small and large, in opera houses and in concert, and even in a London pie and mash shop.

The performance schedule is as follows: Evening performances are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30PM, Friday and Saturday at 8PM. Matinees are Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2PM. Individual tickets are $67 (including opening night), preview tickets are $46, and those 18-40 years old pay their age. Student tickets are available for $15; tickets for educators are half price with proper ID (other restrictions apply).

The Don & Ann Brown Theatre is located in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach, at 201 Clematis Street. For ticket information contact the box office at (561) 514-4042, open Monday through Wednesday from 10AM to 5PM, Thursday through Saturday from 10AM to 8:30PM, and Sunday from 11AM to 7:30PM, or visit www.palmbeachdramaworks.org.
