Book your Theatre Package to see Sweeney Todd the musical
A man is released from jail after being falsely imprisoned and returns to London to find justice and revenge. Sweeney Todd uses his position of trust, as a skilled barber, to dispatch his hirsute victims. He is helped with his plan by pie-shop owner Mrs Lovett: truly an oven-blessed relationship!
Michael Ball last starred in London as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray, winning a Laurence Olivier Award for best actor in a musical 2008. He was also Caractacus Potts in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. In London he has starred in Aspects of Love, Passion and The Woman in White but he is also a hugely recoreded artist with huge DVD sales and a string of sell out concerts to his name and regularly appear on telly for all manner of things – a proper star and a nice bloke!
Immelda Staunton won an Oscar for her last Sondheim role in London as the Baker’s Wife in Into The Woods. Since then she has graced both small and big screens – most notably in Vera Drake but maybe more popularly in the Harry Potter films. In the West End she has starred in Yasmina Reza’s Life X 3, Michael Hastings’ Calico, Frank McGuinness’s There Came a Gypsy Riding , Joe Orton’s Entertaining Mr Sloane and Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance.
