Revenge is a dish best served piping hot...
After Benjamin Barker is exiled to the colonies for a crime he didn’t commit, he returns to London to exact his revenge on the corrupt judge who stole his wife and daughter. With the assistance of the pie shop proprietress from next door, he bides his time under an assumed name: Sweeney Todd. Glasgow Music Theatre returns to Eastwood Park Theatre in 2018 bringing Stephen Sondheim’s razor-sharp classic to life, with murder by the score.

"Mix-ups! Mayhem! A Gay Wedding!"
In a run-down midtown apartment, an agoraphobic theatre buff takes solace in his record collection. To chase his blues away, he settles down to listen to the fun, frenzied (and entirely fictitious) 1928 Broadway hit The Drowsy Chaperone. As the musical farce comes to life in his living room, our world-weary narrator guides us through the deliciously gossamer-thin plot involving a nervous bridegroom, a pair of gangsters, and a very thirsty chaperone. The Brian Cox studio at Scottish Youth Theatre plays host to this show-within-a-show, as Glasgow Music Theatre transports you back to the Roaring Twenties in this perfect pastiche of Hollywood's golden age.
