In a previous discussion with main actor Josh Groban, he recalls his time enacting the part of the main barber.
“… for me what intrigued me the most about Sweeney Todd was the contrasts: the captivating score matched with the darkly humorous content, the gloomy storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of beauty and darkness in the character, along with many of the most extraordinary melodies and verses ever composed. It really is nothing short of a masterpiece to perform, regardless of the nature.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of Broadway’s most remarkable accomplishments in the record of musicals, continually applauded across its diverse incarnations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving bodies.
