SWEENEY TODD: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

Starring: Kevin Melendez as Sweeney Todd. Melendez, a senior at Rowan University and proud actor in Southern New Jersey and New York City, plays the bloody villain in this new critically acclaimed production by the New Jersey Youth Theatre. 

New Jersey Performing Arts Center

Sweeney Todd tells the suspenseful, razor-sharp story of Benjamin Barker (alias Sweeney Todd), who returns to the grimy streets of 19th-century London after years of false imprisonment, then vows to extract a bloody revenge by setting up his barbershop with the help of Mrs. Lovett--a widowed and quite demented baker who turns Todd's victims into the tastiest meat pies in all of London.
