Show Pics: New photos of Staunton & Ball in West End Sweeney Todd

By • West End
The London transfer of Chichester Festival Theatre's revival of Sweeney Todd opens at the West End's Adelphi Theatre tonight (20 March, previews from 10 March 2012) starring Michael Ball as the Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Imelda Staunton as his pie-making partner in crime Mrs Lovett.

The production, which is helmed by Jonathan Kent played a limited season at Chichester's Festival Theatre from October to November 2011.

Sweeney Todd also stars Lucy May Barker as Johanna, Peter Polycarpou as Beadle Bamford, John Bowe as Judge Turpin, Luke Brady as Anthony, Robert Burt as Pirelli and James McConville as Tobias.

Stephen Sondheim's 1979 Broadway musical, which has a book by Hugh Wheeler, was last seen in London in 2005 in John Doyle's actor-musician Watermill Theatre revival, which had an extended season at Trafalgar Studios and then at the New Ambassadors. That production won two Whatsonstage.com Awards and later transferred to Broadway where it won two Tony Awards.

Ahead of its West End opening the producers of Sweeney Todd have released further images of Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton.
