PHOTO CALL: Sweeney’s Cerveris Gives TV’s Kelly Ripa a Close Shave

News   PHOTO CALL: Sweeney’s Cerveris Gives TV’s Kelly Ripa a Close Shave In an appearance that is part of the current “Broadway Week” on the popular television daily “Live with Regis and Kelly,” Tony Award nominee Michael Cerveris got deep into character along with the rest of the cast, while co-host Kelly Ripa played along for the cameras.

Cerveris plays the title character, the “demon barber of Fleet Street,” who exacts revenge on his enemies in the Stephen Sondheim musical by gruesomely dispatching them to the after-life with his razor while they sit in his barber’s chair. Below, the cast of the revival looks on after their performance on “Live” while Cerveris shows Ripa just how close Sweeney’s shaves can get.
