Tooting Arts Club's revival of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's Sweeney Todd welcomes Broadway favorites Norm Lewis and Carolee Carmello to the pie shop at the Barrow Street Theatre beginning tonight.
Lewis and Carmello succeed Jeremy Secomb and Siobhán McCarthy as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett. They are joined by fellow new cast members Stacie Bono (Pirelli and Beggar Woman), Jamie Jackson (Judge Turpin) and John-Michael Lyles (Tobias), alongside Matt Doyle (Anthony), Alex Finke (Johanna), Brad Oscar (the Beadle), Colin Anderson, David Michael Garry, Liz Pearce, and Monet Sabel.
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.
