Jason Manford to join Sweeney Todd cast in West End

Jason Manford will be playing opposite the Demon Barber of Fleet Street as the rival hair cutter in the West End adaptation of the musical Sweeney Todd.

He joins the cast as Pirelli for four weeks from Monday, July 2nd to Friday, July 27th while the role's usual performer Robert Burt is on holiday.

Fans of both gore, song and cheeky Salford comic Manford should book London hotels soon in order to catch his short run in the show.

Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton lead the cast as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett. Also included in the line-up is West End veteran Peter Polycarpou and upcoming star Lucy May Barker.

The musical tells the story of Sweeney Todd, a demon barber that kills his customers before robbing them and disposing of their bodies by baking them into the meat pies his partner, Mrs Lovett, sells.

Manford made his name as a stand-up comedian and TV personality on shows such as 8 out of 10 Cats and The One Show.
