Denver stars DeVotchka take on the Demon Barber!

In a major departure from their regular Broadway series, Denver Performing Arts have enlisted homegrown music stars DeVotchka to adapt the score and play with the orchestra for a full musical staging of gore-fest Sweeney Todd!

With a rock-infused score, the band behind the soundtrack of Little Miss Sunshine will be putting a new spin on the Sonderheim work, that sees a vengeful barber murder those who wronged him, and with the help of his disturbed neighbour Mrs Lovett, serve them up in meat pies! It's a deliciously gruesome musical with an even harder rock edge with your usual favorite tunes including 'The Worst Pies In London', 'Epiphany' and 'The Ballad of Sweeney Todd'.

What is it about?

Sondheim's murderous comedy masterpiece, set in 19th century London, tells the story of the eponymous demon barber, who returns to the city after wrongful transportation. He has vowed to seek revenge on the judge who committed a heinous assault on his wife, leading to her suicide.

With the assistance of Mrs Lovett, an owner of a pie shop, Todd returns to his trade as a barber. Recognised and threatened with blackmail, Todd kills his first victim, and instantly becomes consumed with a bloodthirsty rage, dispatching further victims through a trap door, straight into the kitchen of Mrs Lovett's pie shop, where she uses the corpses as ingredients for her pies. As the bodies stack up and the pies gain recognition for being particularly meaty, how long will it be before Todd and Lovett's grisly partnership is exposed?
