Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford star in the latest Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Check back for Sweeney Todd tickets on New York Theatre Guide. The Sweeney Todd musical is a tale of malice, murder, and meat pies. The title character, a barber from London, has returned to the city after being wrongly imprisoned by a merciless judge many years before. He's determined to reunite with his family, but equally importantly, get revenge, and uses his old profession to do it. After all, his razors can cut not just hair, but also throats. Todd finds an unlikely accomplice in a meat pie shop owner named Mrs. Lovett, who, unbeknownst to her customers, disposes of Todd's victims by serving them up as dinner. Todd initially plans to only target the judge and his servant, but his and Mrs. Lovett's scheme quickly spirals out of control. The 2023 revival is the first to feature Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations, written for a 26-piece band, since the premiere of Sweeney Todd on Broadway in 1979. Len Cariou and Angela Lansbury made the roles of Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett iconic with their performances in that production. Both won Tony Awards for their portrayals, and Sweeney Todd won six additional Tonys, including Best Musical. Sondheim won for Best Original Score, Hugh Wheeler won for Best Book of a Musical, and legendary Broadway multihyphenate Harold Prince won for Best Direction of a Musical. Sweeney Todd has been revived on Broadway twice before: in 1989 with Bob Gunton and Beth Fowler, and in 2005 with Michael Cerveris and Patti LuPone. All four actors received Tony Award nominations for their performances. The show has also played four times in London; its 1980 premiere won the Best New Musical Olivier Award, and two of its revivals won Best Musical Revival. The musical was last revived off Broadway in 2017. That production was immersive: The Barrow Street Theatre was converted into Harrington's Pie & Mash Shop, the action took place all around the audience members, and a resident pie maker cooked and served traditional pie and mash before each performance. Josh Groban leads Sweeney Todd in New York in 2023. This is his second Broadway outing, following his turn as Pierre in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 in 2017. He got a Tony nomination for his performance the following year, and his performance at that Tonys ceremony earned him two Emmy nominations. He's also a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum musician known for songs like "You Raise Me Up" and "Believe." Opposite Groban as Todd is Annaleigh Ashford as Mrs. Lovett. A theatre veteran, she's a Tony winner for You Can't Take it With You and a Tony nominee for Kinky Boots. Her last Broadway appearance before Sweeney Todd was in another Sondheim revival: 2017's Sunday in the Park with George opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. She's also performed in popular musicals like Wicked, Legally Blonde, and Rent during her career. Thomas Kail, a Tony Award winner for Hamilton, directs Sweeney Todd. He reunites with fellow Tony-winning Hamilton collaborator Alex Lacamoire, who serves as music supervisor. ## Who wrote Sweeney Todd? Stephen Sondheim wrote the songs for Sweeney Todd, and Hugh Wheeler wrote the book. The pair also collaborated on A Little Night Music. The Sweeney Todd musical is also based on a play written by Christopher Bond, which is in turn based on the character from The String of Pearls, an 1846 Victorian story whose author is unknown. ## What are the songs from Sweeney Todd? Sweeney Todd features well-known Sondheim songs like "A Little Priest," "Johanna," and "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd." Here are all the songs in the Sweeney Todd musical. "Prelude: The Ballad of Sweeney Todd" "No Place Like London" "The Barber and His Wife" "The Worst Pies in London" "Poor Thing" "My Friends" "The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd (Reprise 1)" "Green Finch and Linnet Bird" "Ah, Miss" "Johanna" "Pirelli's Miracle Elixir" "The Contest (Part 1): Shaving Scene" "The Contest (Part 2): Tooth-Pulling Scene" "The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd (Reprise 2)" "Wait" "Pirelli's Death" "The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd (Reprise 3)" "Johanna (Mea Culpa)" "Kiss Me" "Ladies In Their Sensitivities"/"Kiss Me (Quartet)" "Pretty Women" "Epiphany" "A Little Priest" "God, That's Good!"
