Directors Roundtable Backdrops

There's no place like London... and nothing like a TheatreWorld backdrop! For the streets of London, VICTORIAN STREET WITH SNOWDUST is a dark, yet classic choice. For a seedier feel, consider OLD WORLD ALLEY--and for the early scenes, where Anthony and Sweeney first set foot in London, consider VINTAGE CITY DOCKS, complete with old-fashioned ships. Like Judge Turpin himself, the judge's home should appear upstanding, yet conceal dark secrets within. Ornate BAROQUE PARLOR, with its darker coloring, hints at something sinister. For the flashback to the ball, VICTORIAN PALACE BALLROOM is covered in drapes, perfect for hiding less savory truths. For Mrs. Lovett's bleak establishment, use VINTAGE WAREHOUSE - B--just add set pieces to create the eating area and Sweeney's famous chair. Finally, to frame your stage, consider industrial IRONWORKS HEADER and IRONWORKS LEGS or elegant VICTORIAN RUBY CURTAINS LEGS, as red as blood. No matter what you choose, your audience will surely shout, "God, That's Good!" when they see your Sweeney Todd set.

Sweeney Todd Backdrops

Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, who returns to nineteenth century London to seek revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!
