The Tooting Arts Club production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street will welcome back original off-Broadway cast members Betsy Morgan and Joseph Taylor for the final weeks of its run, July 31-August 26.

Morgan will return to the role of Pirelli and the Beggar Woman, with Taylor, an original company member of the Tooting Arts Club production in England, returning to the role of Tobias. Off-Broadway cast member Jake Boyd will return the same night to take on the role of Anthony.

This production of the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical came to Manhattan following sold-out runs in London, where the show debuted in Harrington's Pie and Mash Shop, the oldest continuously operating pie shop in Britain. Directed by Bill Buckhurst, Sweeney Todd is set in a working pie-shop environment re-created at the Barrow Street Theatre. The revival opened March 1, 2017.

The current cast includes Thom Sesma (Sweeney Todd), Sally Ann Triplett (Mrs. Lovett), Stacie Bono (Pirelli and Beggar Woman), Michael James Leslie (Judge Turpin), Zachary Noah Piser (Tobias), John Rapson (The Beadle), Billy Harrigan Tighe (Anthony), and DeLaney Westfall (Johanna), with Daniel Berryman, Laura Darrell, Matt Leisy, Liz Pearce, Monet Sabel, Drew Seigla, and Haley Swindal.
