Synopsis

A wronged barber escapes from prison, returning to his native London to exact revenge on the corrupt judge who unjustly imprisoned him and stole his wife and child. When he joins forces with the lonely piemaker Mrs. Lovett, he sets into motion a tale of lust, murder, revenge and some really twisted meat pie recipes. Sondheim’s electrifying masterpiece explodes off the AE stage with raw power and some of the best singing you’ll hear in Atlanta all year.

A masterpiece of nervous laughter and sudden jolting shocks. London Telegraph
One helluva show. Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Cracking high class entertainment with a pulsating score... The Independent
