Sweeney Todd 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 22 2017
Price: $20-$25
Wronged by the law and unjustly exiled, Sweeney Todd returns to England with vengeance on his mind. Fortune favors him: An old acquaintance, Mrs. Lovett, has held onto his barbering tools for him. Equipped for business, he opens his barber shop once more, all the while plotting to lure his greatest enemy in for an uncomfortably close shave. Pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, for her part, figures out a way to upcycle any stray bodies Todd reaps during his grisly quest. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a musical steeped in darkness and blood, and should put you off shaving for at least a couple weeks. Stray Dog Theatre presents Sweeney Todd at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (April 6 to 22) at Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). Tickets are $20 to $25.
