The critically-acclaimed Broadway revival of SWEENEY TODD – THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET is reportedly set to transfer to the West End, it has been rumoured.
The musical is reportedly set to hit the West End, late 2024.
For the first time since 1980, Broadway audiences are experiencing Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award–winning score as it was performed in the original production—with Jonathan Tunick’s classic 26-player orchestration.
Tony Award–winning director Thomas Kail helms the return of this musical thriller. Tony winner Alex Lacamoire reunites with Kail as Music Supervisor, and Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett choreographs this new production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s SWEENEY TODD – THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET.
The landmark musical tells the tale of a resourceful pie shop owner and a vengeful barber out for blood. After he’s sent away by a corrupt judge, Sweeney returns to London years later seeking his long-lost family, and forms an unlikely partnership with Mrs. Lovett, who serves up pies underneath his former shop. Together, they wreak havoc on Fleet Street and serve up the hottest – and most unsettling – pies in London.
SWEENEY TODD – THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET SSTREET has music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, with a book from Hugh Wheeler. From an adaptation by Christopher Bond.
We’re well overdue a big London Sweeney revival, fingers crossed for this one! ! !
