The New York Philharmonic has announced casting for its staged production of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, which will run from March 5-8 at Avery Fisher Hall. Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel will lead the cast in the role of Sweeney, alongside Academy Award-winning actress Emma Thompson as Mrs. Lovett. Lonny Price produces and directs.

The cast will also feature Jeff Blumenkrantz (Murder for Two) as The Beadle, Tony Award winner Christian Borle (Peter and the Starcatcher) as Pirelli, Kyle Brenn (Leap of Faith) as Tobias Ragg, Jay Armstrong Johnson (Hands on a Hardbody) as Anthony Hope, Erin Mackey (Chaplin) as Johanna, and Olivier Award winner Philip Quast as Judge Turpin.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler, Sweeney Todd first opened on Broadway at the Uris Theatre on March 1, 1979, and was directed by Harold Prince. The show received eight Tony Awards and 11 Drama Desk Awards that year. It has since seen two Broadway revivals.
