“Sweeney Todd” Starts Nov. 6
NU Theatre will present “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” on stage at NU’s Leary Theatre from Nov. 6-16, 2014.
Sweeney Todd, a barber unjustly exiled from his home and family, returns to London seeking retribution against the unscrupulous judge who framed him. The road to vengeance leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, the ingeniously enterprising proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new practice and proceeds to slice his way through London’s upper crust. The play contains adult subject matter and language.
