Parkour, street art, contemporary dance show, and punk rock live! Where can you see it all together? The rock musical TODD is taking stage again! On November 28 and 29, welcome to the Moscow Palace of Youth!
"TODD" is a grandiose theatrical and musical experiment of the legendary Russian punk rock band "The King and the Jester" and the production company "Theatrical Business".
The plot of the rock musical "TODD" is based on an old English legend about mad hairdresser Sweeney Todd, known to many through Tim Burton's film "Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and the Broadway musical of the same name. The action of the rock musical takes place on the outskirts of modern London, where colorful guest workers run the show. Hairdresser Sweeney Todd, upon returning from prison, where he was put on the false accusation, found out that his wife was missing. A straight razor in the barber's hands turns into a revenge tool, that can not be escaped by none of those who shattered his well-being.
 

The first Russian interpretation of the well-known plot is a gripping and mind blowing rock musical show that blends together the principles of the actual drama art, the choreography of the modern dance, the original live songs of the band "King and the Jester" , the parkour tricks and stunts of the Street Union team and graffitti illustrations from artist P-183.
The idea to retell this story in the style of punk rock belongs to Mikhail Gorshenev, the frontman of "The King and the Jester" band. The original Russian libretto for "TODD" was written by famous playwrights Mikhail Bartenev and Andrei Usachev: they turned out to be a grim murderer. "The TODD" transforming the theatrical standards, mixing ballet, parkour, graffiti, classical musical, rock opera and mystery play in the grotesque manner that is inherent in "The King and the Jester" band. The band musicians perform their songs live throughout the show.

In addition to actors, musicians, and the parkour team, a choir and a ballet troupe take part in the musical. The performance employs more than 40 people, uses a large amount of equipment. The stage settings were created specially for parkour tricks and decorated by the famous street artist named P183.
