Len Cariou and George Hearn in Sweeney Todd on Broadway.


"I can say without hyperbole that Len Cariou is the reason I perform in musical theatre today. His performance was shocking, thrilling, terrifying, actorly, musical, serious and reckless in ways I have aspired to ever since. And George took up the mantle brilliantly adding his own demonic panache. Between them I saw the original production seven times as a young actor, and it left an indelible impression."
