The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and the creative team celebrated the Off-Broadway transfer of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street which originated in the Mayor’s home neighbourhood of Tooting in South London.
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. It is designed by Simon Kenny. The Barrow Street Theatre will be transformed to mirror the experience of Harrington’s Pie and Mash Shop, the oldest continuously operating pie shop in Britain.
Sweeney Todd will begin previews February 14, 2017, with an official opening night set for March 1.
