Josh Groban & Annaleigh Ashford to Play Their Final Performance in SWEENEY TODD in January

Tony and Grammy-nominated multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford will play their final performance of the Broadway revival of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street on Sunday January 14, 2024, concluding their 46-week run headlining the acclaimed production.
 
Groban received a 2023 Tony Award nomination for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his performance as Sweeney Todd, and Ashford received a 2023 Tony Award nomination for Best Leading Actress in a Musical as well as the 2023 Drama League Distinguished Performance Award and 2023 Drama Desk Award for her performance as Mrs. Lovett.
 
The production, currently on-sale through January 14, 2024, will extend its run into the spring of 2024. New casting for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street as well as extension dates and ticket on-sale information will be announced shortly.
 
Directed by Thomas Kail, and featuring music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, with a book by Hugh Wheeler from an adaptation by Christopher Bond, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street began performances on February 26, 2023, and opened on March 26, 2023, at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 W 46th St, New York, NY 10036). The revival is led by producer Jeffrey Seller.
 
For the first time since 1980, Broadway audiences can experience Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award®–winning score as it was performed in the original production—with Jonathan Tunick’s original 26-player orchestration on an epic scale. Tony Award–winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton) helms the return of the musical thriller.
 
Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s landmark musical, from an adaptation by Christopher Bond, tells the tale of a resourceful pie shop owner and a vengeful barber out for blood. After he’s sent away by a corrupt judge, Sweeney returns to London years later seeking his long-lost family, and forms an unlikely partnership with Mrs. Lovett, who serves up pies underneath his former shop. Together, they wreak havoc on Fleet Street and serve up the hottest – and most unsettling – pies in London.
 
The 2023 Broadway cast recording of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, featuring Groban and Ashford, was released earlier this fall by Warner Music Group’s Arts Music and Reprise Records, and is available now on all streaming and digital platforms. Produced by Alex Lacamoire and co-produced by Thomas Kail, the cast recording features Jonathan Tunick’s expansive original 26-player orchestration from the original production, as well the complete opening night cast of the revival.
