The Tooting Arts Club’s immersive production of Sweeney Todd, which was first staged in an actual London pie shop, officially opens March 1 after beginning previews February 14 at New York’s Barrow Street Theatre. The Barrow Street Theatre has been completely transformed into a working pie shop especially for the production’s New York bow.
This production of the tale of blood-thirsty barber Sweeney Todd and resourceful pie-shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, according to press notes, “immerses audiences in a completely new theatrical experience. This Sweeney Todd comes to New York City following sold-out runs in London where the show debuted in Harrington’s Pie and Mash Shop, the oldest continuously operating pie shop in the city, before transferring (by special arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh) to a West End venue on Shaftesbury Avenue. The working pie-shop environment will be re-created at the Barrow Street Theatre.”
