The Tooting Arts Club production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is set to have its New York premiere starting February 14 at the Barrow Street Theatre (27 Barrow Street). Opening night is March 1.
This production of the classic tale of blood-thirsty barber Sweeney Todd and resourceful pie-shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett 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.
The cast includes Jeremy Secomb, Olivier Award nominee Siobhán McCarthy, Duncan Smith, Joseph Taylor, Matt Doyle, Alex Finke, Betsy Morgan, and Tony Award nominee Brad Oscar. Beginning April 11 Tony Award nominees Norm Lewis and Carolee Carmello will join the cast as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett, respectively.
