September Opening for Sweeney Todd in Leeds
Date Posted: 11/09/13
One of Stephen Sondheim's best-known works, Sweeney Todd, is due to appear at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, starting this month.
Recently made into a 2007 film which featured the likes of Johnny Depp and Sacha Baron Cohen, the piece's full title is Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and it first appeared back in the late 1970s.
Musical numbers in the show include The Ballad of Sweeney Todd and The Worst Pies In London.
This version, directed by James Brining, will open at the Leeds theatre on September 26th, and remain in place until October 26th. David Birrell is set to take on the role of Sweeney Todd himself.
Leeds, which is also home to The Grand Theatre and Opera House, is a wonderful theatre breaks option. There are galleries, several covered shopping areas and a spectacular Harvey Nichols store in the city too, among other things.
