During a prior conversation with principal performer Josh Groban, he recalls his experience enacting the character of the central barber.
“… for me the most interesting aspect of Sweeney Todd was the contrasts: the lovely score combined with the darkly humorous content, the gloomy storyline. There’s such a juxtaposition of elegance and grimness in the part, combined with several of the most exceptional melodies and verses ever crafted. It genuinely is nothing short of a masterpiece to act, regardless of the type.”
Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is one of Broadway’s most remarkable achievements in the record of musicals, consistently praised across its different iterations by the Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award-giving bodies.
