The Barrow Street Theatre is turned into a working pie shop for this revival of Stephen Sondheim's musical theatre classic about a murderous barber and the pie shop owner that helps to dispose of his victims.
From the producers: A barber who was unjustly imprisoned for years by a corrupt judge returns to England bent on revenge — a revenge that turns indiscriminately murderous, leading his resourceful accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, to bake the victims into meat pies.
Tooting Arts Club’s immersive London production of "Sweeney Todd" premiered in a Fringe run at Harrington’s Pie and Mash Shop prior to a 2015 West End transfer. London critics praised the sold-out staging. Bill Buckhurst directs the production that utilizes a cast of eight to tell the tale of the demon barber of Fleet Street. The Barrow Street Theatre has been transformed to mirror the experience of Harrington’s Pie and Mash Shop, the oldest continuously operating pie shop in Britain.
Tony nominee Norm Lewis will played his final performance as Sweeney Todd August 13. Beginning August 29, Hugh Panaro ("Les Misérables," "The Phantom of the Opera") assumed the role.
The cast features Hugh Panaro (as Sweeney Todd), Tony nominee Carolee Carmello (as Mrs. Lovett), Jake Boyd (as Anthony), Eryn LeCroy (as Johanna), John-Michael Lyles (as Tobias), Michael James Leslie (as Judge Turpin), Betsy Morgan (as Pirelli and Beggar Woman), John Rapson (as The Beadle), as well as Matt Leisy, Liz Pearce, Danny Rothman, Monet Sabel, and Anne Tolpegin.
