Hugh Panaro and Carolee Carmello Kill in New Sweeney Todd Photos
Panaro joined the cast in the title role on August 29.
The Tooting Arts Club production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street recently welcomed Broadway vet Hugh Panaro (The Phantom of the Opera) into the title role at the Barrow Street Theatre and has released a new set of production photos to satisfy your bloodlust. Check out the photos in the gallery below.
Carolee Carmello continues in the role of Mrs. Lovett. She and Panaro are joined by Stacie Bono (Beggar Woman/Adolfo Pirelli), Jake Boyd (Anthony Hope), Michael James Leslie (Judge Turpin), Eryn LeCroy (Johanna Barker), John-Michael Lyles (Tobias), John Rapson (Beadle Bamford), and Colin Anderson (Anthony Hope/Tobias Ragg). Colin Anderson, David Michael Garry, Matt Leisy, Liz Pearce, Danny Rothman, Monet Sabel, and Anne Tolpegin round out the cast.
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 Stephen Sondhem-Hugh Wheeler musical is set in a working pie-shop environment re-created at the Barrow Street Theatre. The revival opened March 1.
