Set in 19th-century London, this
thrilling musical tells the story of ousted barber Benjamin
Barker, also known as Sweeney Todd, and his revenge on the
scheming judge who exiled him for 15 years. When the
bloodthirsty Sweeney joins forces with the failing pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, the two introduce a new, carnal ingredient to Lovett’s meat pies that sends the people of London straight to the shop — and new victims to Sweeney’s barber chair.
Death of a Salesman June 15, 16, 17 and 18
Willy Loman was once the best traveling salesman in his territory; but time is catching up with him, and old age is slowing him down. Linda, his wife, hopes he can stay put for a while and work in New York; after all, she thinks his years of service to the company have earned him that right. Willy knows that the key to success is to be well-liked, and he struggles to understand why his adult sons, Biff and Happy, have failed to learn that lesson. As Willy tries to instill in his sons the values he has lived by, he clings tenaciously to his version of the American Dream—even as he watches it quickly slip away.
