Sweeney Todd

Book by Hugh Wheeler
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Based on an adaptation by Christopher Bond
Musical Adaptations by DeVotchKa
Apr 8 - May 15, 2016
The Stage Theatre (View Map & Seating Chart)
Run Time: Approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes plus a 15 minute intermission
Ticket Price: Starts at $35 - 40; pricing varies by date
Age Recommendation: 12+
Advisory: Some gory scenes and adult themes. Theatrical haze, fog and loud sound effects are used in this production.

DeVotchKa, the Grammy-nominated, Denver hometown music heroes, take on the legendary demon barber of Fleet Street, serving up a delicious reinvention of Sondheim’s magnificent musical thriller. Hell-bent on revenge, Sweeney Todd takes up with his enterprising neighbor in a devilish plot to slice their way through London’s upper crust. Justice will be served — along with audacious humor, bloody good thrills and DeVotchKa’s lush brand of gypsy punk.

Producing Partner: June Travis

'Sweeney Todd' stars on bringing fresh blood to Sondheim
“DeVotchKa will attract a completely different kind of audience. And boy, anytime you can bring a whole new swath of people into the theatre who don’t normally come is a great, great thing.” Read More

DEVOTCHKA, Orchestrations

For more than a decade DeVotchKa has been melting its sweeping influences into an authentic and totally original blend of rock ‘n roll. DeVotchKa’s first big break happened when KCRW introduced LA listeners to DeVotchKa on Morning Becomes Eclectic. The directors of Little Miss Sunshine happened to be listening this fateful day, loved what they heard, and hired the band to write the score for their film. A critical and box office smash, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa’s soundtrack, a Grammy. The little band from Denver was suddenly known all across the nation, playing large venues and major music festivals, including Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. The love spread to Europe, Asia, and South America which are yearly destinations for the band. DeVotchKa is: Nick Urata: vocals, guitars, theremin, trumpet, piano. Jeanie Schroder: acoustic bass, sousaphone. Shawn King: drums, percussion, trumpet. Tom Hagerman: violin, viola, accordion, piano.
