The acclaimed Tooting Arts Club's pie-shop revival of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's Sweeney Todd has extended its run at the Barrow Street Theatre through December 31.

The production comes 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, the working pie-shop environment is re-created at the Barrow Street Theatre. The revival opened March 1.

Through April 9, the cast is led by original London stars Jeremy Secomb and Siobhán McCarthy as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett, with Broadway favorites Norm Lewis and Carolee Carmello replacing them beginning April 11. Also departing the company April 9 are Betsy Morgan (Pirelli and Beggar Woman), Duncan Smith (Judge Turpin), and Joseph Taylor (Tobias), to be replaced by Stacie Bono (Pirelli and Beggar Woman), Jamie Jackson (Judge Turpin) and John-Michael Lyles (Tobias). The company also includes Matt Doyle (Anthony), Alex Finke (Johanna), Brad Oscar (the Beadle), Colin Anderson, David Michael Garry, Liz Pearce, and Monet Sabel.

Additionally, the producers have announced a limited number of $39 tickets made available by digital lottery beginning with tonight's 7:30pm performance. A photo ID is required for pickup, and the lottery is limited to one entry per person, with two tickets per winner.

Casting for performances from August 15-December 31 is still to be announced.
