Accompanying the album is a 40-page booklet filled with the full libretto, stunning production photos, and an insightful essay by Peter Marks, theatre writer for the Washington Post. The album, already available on streaming and digital platforms, has been nominated for the 2024 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

The Broadway revival stars Josh Groban, Tony and Grammy-nominated artist, and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford. Directed by Thomas Kail, the show features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler, based on Christopher Bond’s adaptation. Opening on March 26 at New York’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, the production has been led by producer Jeffrey Seller.

The cast album, produced by Alex Lacamoire and co-produced by Thomas Kail, showcases Jonathan Tunick’s original 26-player orchestration from the initial production. The cast includes Jordan Fisher, Gaten Matarazzo, Ruthie Ann Miles, Maria Bilbao, Jamie Jackson, John Rapson, and Nicholas Christopher, alongside a talented ensemble.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street has been recognized with two 2023 Tony Awards for Best Lighting Design of a Musical and Best Sound Design of a Musical, with additional nominations including “Best Revival of a Musical” and acting categories. The production also won three 2023 Drama Desk Awards and the Drama League Distinguished Performance Award for Annaleigh Ashford.

This revival marks the first time since 1980 that Broadway audiences will experience Sondheim’s score with Tunick’s original orchestration. The original Broadway production of Sweeney Todd won eight Tony Awards in 1980, including Best Musical.

Sondheim and Wheeler’s musical tells the gripping story of a barber seeking revenge and a pie shop owner with a dark secret. It’s a tale of love, loss, and unsettling culinary delights set in Victorian London.
