“Close Shave" Cocktail


One Sweeney Todd cocktail is great, two are even better! Our culinary partner Continental will be offering a special “Close Shave” drink before performances and during intermission. A “Close Shave” is a warm red velvet hot chocolate infused with raspberry coulis, Baileys Irish Cream and Tito's Handmade Vodka, topped with whipped cream and house-made red velvet cake crumbles. A non-alcoholic version available as well! The perfect drink for a performance on a chilly fall evening!

Photo Opportunities with Vintage Barber Chair

Our friends at the Detroit Barber Co. are providing a special vintage barber chair for fun Sweeney Todd photo opportunities at the Detroit Opera House! Have a seat in the chair if you dare!
