Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Times are hard in 1846 London and one must make do. Nellie Lovett adds something extra to the meat pies she peddles on Fleet Street. The secret ingredient: freshly murdered victims of her partner in crime, barber Sweeney Todd. Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim refashions a macabre tale into a musical masterwork in this dazzling performance of the 1979 Broadway hit originally staged by Harold Prince. In her Tony-winning role, Angela Lansbury plays Nellie. George Hearn turns his stage role of twisted Sweeney into an Emmy-winning triumph. The score coils around itself in every-tightening spirals. The lines ripple with black humor and madness. Enter Sweeney's tonsorial parlor. Attend the tale. Originally shown on cable by The Entertainment Channel, later rebroadcast by Showtime, and finally aired on the PBS series "Great Performances" (season 12, episode 9).Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street featuring Angela Lansbury and George Hearn is available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video. It's a drama and musical movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 8.4 (3,475 votes).
