Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris, directed by Tony-Award winner John Doyle, led this dazzling new reinvention of Stephen Sondheim's magnificent musical thriller to 2 Tony Awards, 4 Drama Desk Awards, 3 Drama League Awards, 2 Outer Critics Circle Awards, and a NY Drama Critics Circle Special Citation. The legendary demon barber, hell-bent on revenge, takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a delicious plot to slice their way through England's upper crust. Justice will be served--along with lush melody, audacious humor and bloody good thrills. Innovative, intimate and ingenious, this revolutionary new production "is an event theatergoers will be talking about for years." (The Wall Street Journal).
