The Stephen Sondheim/Hugh Wheeler masterpiece “has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical) for its Broadway premiere, as well as the Oliver Award for Best New Musical,” Broadway World wrote. “The Broadway revival went on to win two more Tony Awards taking its total up to 10 Tony Awards. 2019 also marks the 40th anniversary of the musical, having first opened on Broadway in 1979.”
Directed by Bobby Garcia, Sweeney Todd in Manila marks Atlantis’ final offering for its 20th-anniversary season. Fans on Twitter are obviously excited.
