Sweeney Todd Summary *SPOILERS INCLDUED!!* by Lindsay Platt

The “man” aka Johnny Depp plays Sweeney Todd who’s real name is actually Benjamin Barker who is a barber. We join our protagonist as he is coming back to London. What took him away from London you ask? Well…a vicious judge (played by the awesome Alan Rickman) was after his wife Lucy. In order to get her….he had Mr. Barker exciled for 15 years for a crime he did not commit. While back in town as Sweeney Todd and looking completely different…he stumbles upon the lovely Ms. Lovette (played by the ever so talented Helena Bohnam Carter). Ms Lovette owns a pie shop. They get to know each other and Ms. Lovettes sets up a barber shop above the pie shop and she becomes his land lady. He and Ms. Lovette go and witness a display in front of town that is promoting a great after shave elixir. Then, the guy who is selling the stuff (Mr. Pirelli played by the amazing Sacha Baron Cohen) comes out and challenges Sweeney to a shaving contest. Sweeney ends up winning and gets reconnected to his razor blades. But, something is missing. Mr. Todd (or Mr. T as Ms Lovette called him) wanted vengeance for everything wrong that was done to him. Since Sweeney was so good in the contest, Mr. Pirelli comes to his shop and asks for a shave. The guy ended up knowing a lot about Sweeney Todd’s days as Benjamin Barker and blackmails him. This enrages Sweeney and he ends up slitting Mr.Pirelli’s throat.

Happy Birthday,!

Today this site, has its 4th birthday.

February 4th, 2004, it went online with the domain with a horrible layout and less German-English content. After I could get the domain from a friend, and with the help of so wonderful staffers, it went bigger and bigger and is now, after 4 years, a wide known site with at least acceptable layouts and a lot of content.

Feel free to congratulate JDorg in the guestbook or ask your questions about the history of this site in the faq

On to the next ten decades!

Empire, February 2008 – Sweeney Todd

Title: Sweeney Todd

Author: Kim Newman

Publication: UK- Empire

Issue: February 2008

Everybody knows the story of Sweeney Todd, the barber who cut his customers’ throats and turned the corpses over to his criminal partner Mrs Lovett to be cooked up in meat pies. Debate persists as to whether he was an actual historical character, but the Demon Barber Of Fleet Street has been prominent in our national gallery of horrors since the middle of the19th century.

The usual version of the tale – as enshrined in Victorian penny dreadful, sensationalist theatre and a ramshackle but wonderful 1936 vehicle for aptly named British horror star Tod Slaughter – is all about crime. Sweeney Todd’s methods may he gruesome, but he’s primarily in it for the money (the early versions of the story are titled after the loot, The String Of Pearls). Then in I968, playwright Christopher Bond came up with a new take, drawing on Jacobean revenge tragedy and populist melodrama in which horribly violent stories expose social inequities. This reading caught the attention of composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, who adapted it into a dark, bloody 1979 Broadway (and West End) musical which has understandably never enjoyed the long carriage-trade runs much lesser shows have managed, but is acclaimed as a peak of the form.

This masterpiece has proved a daunting movie prospect: the few films of other Sondheim shows haven’t been hits,
