Oh yes! We've got a red carpet video for the opening night of SWEENEY TODD, which opened on the 20th on the West End. The video features interviews with stars Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton as well as Jason Manford, David Mitchell, Jim Broadbent and Tom Jones. Plus, there's a little peek of an onstage kiss.

The West-End production of SWEENEY TODD, starring Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton, opened March 20 at the Adelphi Theatre, following its sell-out success at the Chichester Festival Theatre.

Widely acknowledged as Stephen Sondheim's musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd stars distinguished musical performer Michael Ball as the eponymous demon barber of Fleet Street and Oscar-nominated actress Imelda Staunton as the devoted Mrs Lovett.

Combining a brutal sensibility with elements of English music hall, the production offers a fascinating portrait of a man driven to madness by injustice.

Sweeney Todd is directed by Jonathan Kent, designed by Anthony Ward and choreographed by Denni Sayers with lighting design by Mark Henderson. The Musical Director is Nicholas Skilbeck, with orchestration by Jonathan Tunick and sound design by Paul Groothuis.

The cast includes: John Bowe, Peter Polycarpou, Robert Burt, Gillian Kirkpatrick, Lucy May Barker, Luke Brady, James McConville, and Simeon Truby. The ensemble includes: Valda Aviks, Will Barratt, Josie Benson, Emily Bull, John Coates, Daniel Graham, Robine Landi, Tim Morgan, Aoife Nally, Adam Pearce, Wendy Somerville, Kerry Washington and Annabelle Williams.
