Theatre news

THE FIRST photo of David Bedella, Sarah Ingram and the cast of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street has been released.

The production, which has music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, kicks-off the autumn season at Twickenham Theatre, where it runs from September 16 (previews from September 10) to October 4, 2014.

Described as a memorable and horrifyingly dark musical-comedy, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street depicts the barber Benjamin Barker who, after years of false imprisonment, reinvents himself as Sweeney Todd and begins a savage quest to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family.

Aided by amoral pie shop owner Mrs Lovett, he sets out to bring justice not only to the judge who destroyed his life, but to all the people of London.
