The immersive Off-Broadway staging of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is now selling through February 25, 2018. The acclaimed production, which recently welcomed a slew of new cast members, was previously scheduled through December 31 following an earlier extension.

Directed by Bill Buckhurst, The Tooting Arts Club’s immersive production of Sweeney Todd began previews February 14 at the Barrow Street Theatre prior to an official opening March 1. The downtown theatre has been completely transformed into a working pie shop especially for the show, which currently stars Hugh Panaro in the title role alongside Carolee Carmello as Mrs. Lovett.

Completing the cast are Jake Boyd as Anthony, Eryn LeCroy as Johanna, Michael James Leslie as Judge Turpin, John Rapson as the Beadle, Stacie Bono as Pirelli and the Beggar Woman, and John-Michael Lyles as Tobias.

The company of Sweeney Todd also includes Matt Leisy, Liz Pearce, Danny Rothman, Monet Sabel, and Anne Tolpegin.

Sweeney Todd features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler from an adaptation by Christopher Bond.

Watch Carmello and Norm Lewis—who played the title role before Panaro took over—talk about the Barrow Street production in the video below:

The creative team for the Off-Broadway production includes set and costume designer Simon Kenny, lighting designer Amy Mae, and sound designer by Matt Stine. Music supervision and arrangements are by Benjamin Cox, with music direction by Matt Aument, casting by Telsey + Company / Cesar A. Rocha, CSA, and production stage management by Richard A. Hodge.
