Bloody revenge one shave at a time.

In this infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, the resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barbershop . Mrs. Lovett’s luck 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!

Comedian, NPR humorist, and best-selling author David Sedaris comes to the Riverwalk Center for an evening of satire and riveting conversation. With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. He slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness with great skill, proving he is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, When You Are Engulfed in Flames, and Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, each of which became a bestseller. Sedaris’ engagement in Breckenridge is in support of his latest book, Theft by Finding, a compilation of Sedaris’ favorite diary entries over the years.

This event will feature all-new readings of his work, including a Q&A session and a book signing before and after the show.
