Directed by 2023 Tony nominee Thomas Kail, the revival opened at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre March 26—read reviews here. The production is nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, plus nods in the Leading Actor and Actress categories for stars Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford.
The production features Jonathan Tunick's full, 26-piece orchestration for the first time on Broadway since the 1979 original production, under the baton of three-time Tony winner Alex Lacamoire. A forthcoming cast album, to be released by Warner Music Group’s Arts Music and Reprise Records, is produced by Lacamoire and co-produced by Thomas Kail, and can be pre-saved on Spotify here.

Based on the Christopher Bond play of the same name, Sweeney Todd centers on its titular barber who seeks revenge on a corrupt judge and turns to murder, with neighbor and accomplice Mrs. Lovett ultimately discovering they can dispose of the evidence by serving up the most unsettling meat pies to the people of London.
