Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street opens on June 28 (less than 2 weeks away)! The show features a live orchestra, a large ensemble and amazing performances from professionals from all over the world. This is truly not to be missed! There is more information on the show as well as links to order tickets at the Sweeney Todd Website. You can also join us on Facebook!
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, this musical is one of the masterpieces of the 20th century. This is the first time it will be shown in Prague and there will only be 10 performances! Don’t wait to get tickets.
Steve Josephson, our director who has come from California to stage the show, has created a magical atmosphere on stage. It is sure to give you chills. Set in a graveyard, the story is told by the ghosts of Sweeney’s victims, all fighting to impart the message: To seek revenge may lead to Hell, but everyone does it…
Brian Caspe and Caryn Stringer head up the cast as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett. Jan Tenkrat and Veronika Bellova play the young enginues Anthony and Johanna. Karel Korsa plays Tobias, Milan Malinovsky plays Judge Turpin and Jamie King plays the Beadle. Lucie and Petr Novotny round out the cast as the Beggar Woman and Pirelli. Ensemble members David Bousa, Hana Kadlecova, Jana Machova, Viktoria Matusovova, Michael Pitthan, Eric Sammons, Tereza Trnkova, Boris Wilke and Monika Ziskova provide amazing support to the show with outstanding musicality and presence.
