At the website of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Sweeney Todd:

"The avenger as hero is a classical character, also in musicals, but he rarely goes as tangibly or barbarically to work as the blood-dripping barber Sweeney Todd.

(...)

With his companion Mrs. Lovett he opens a scary mix of barbershop and pie shop. Todd eventually becomes a respected barber, and nobody asks where his customers go - but, as it is phrased in the end song of Act One: We'll serve anyone. And the pies of Mrs. Lovett become endlessly popular..."
