Fabulous Rare Photos Of Original Broadway & Revival SWEENEY TODD Now AvailableA collection of rarely seen and absorbing photos depicting the original Broadway and first revival production of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's multi-Tony Award-winning modern musical masterpiece SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET are now available to view courtesy of the New York Public Library For The Performing Arts.

Extensive production photos showcasing original Broadway stars Len Cariou and Angela Lansbury in addition to replacement performers Dorothy Loudon, George Hearn and more are now available, in addition to little-seen shots of the 1989 Broadway revival starring Bob Gunton and Beth Fowler.

Additionally, a few behind the scenes photos of rehearsals as well as some unique promotional shots as captured by famed photographer Martha Swope are now available to view, as well.

Of note, SWEENEY TODD originally opened on March 1, 1979 and ran until June 29, 1980, only to return in revival form soon thereafter in 1989.
