In the Market Square, Sweeney Todd challenges rival barber Pirelli to a contest, betting his set of valuable razors against 5 pounds that he is the better barber. Pirelli takes the bet. The Beadle officiates the event and, impressed by Todd's winning performance, promises to visit his establishment in Fleet Street within the week.
The ensemble sings a stirring reprise of "Ballad of Sweeney Todd.."
Sweeney pondered and Sweeney planned, barbing the hook, baiting the trap, setting it out for the Beadle to snap.
Below, back in Fleet Street, Mrs. Lovett calms and reassures an impatient Sweeney in the song "Wait."
Sweeney: "Where is the Beadle? He said he'd be here before the week was out!"
Lovett: "And who says the week's out yet? It's only Tuesday"
