Due to popular demand performances of Tooting Arts Club’s acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd will now run until Saturday 30 May 2015. Tickets for the new booking period are now on sale here.
Sweeney Todd is currently taking place at 39-45 Shaftesbury Avenue whilst its original home Harrington’s Pie and Mash Shop undergoes refurbishment. Tooting Arts have recreated the interior of Harrington’s, meticulously building an exact replica which now houses the show.
The production is delivered to intimate audiences by candlelight, across the tables. Tooting Arts continue to partner with the Harrington’s for the project, with meat pie, mash and liquor served up on site for audiences to buy before the show.
Sweeney Todd is directed by Bill Buckhurst, who recently co-directed the international touring production of Shakespeare’s Globe’s Hamlet alongside Dominic Dromgoole. This is the fourth production Bill has directed for Tooting Arts Club, following Tinderbox in 2011, Barbarians in 2012 and A Midsummer Night’s Dream last summer. His other directing credits include The Vegemite Tales in the West End and numerous touring productions for Shakespeare’s Globe. Musical direction is from Benjamin Cox, also composer and musical director for acclaimed cabaret theatre troupe The Ruby Dolls.
