“The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” arrived on Broadway in 1979 with volcanic force, and has lost none of his power to stun audiences. Stephen Sondheim’s wildly popular Victorian melodrama may be called a musical, but it’s universally admired for its operatic scope. Exiled on false charges, Sweeney returns from fifteen years of forced labor obsessed with revenge on the corrupt judge who convicted him. As he descends inexorably into madness, a stage crowded with fascinating, complicated characters is eventually covered with bodies—and Sondheim’s exhilarating music, infused with demented wit, conquers all.
