Lucy May Barker playing Johanna in Sweeney Todd at Chichester

The cast for Sweeney Todd at Chichester just gets better and better with Michael Ball playing the title role, Imelda Staunton at Mrs Lovett, Peter Polycarpou as the Beadle and now Lucy May Barker is playing Johanna.

She has a fabulous singing voice which will perfectly complement this role having most recently played Ilse in the original London cast of the four-time Olivier Award winning Spring Awakening

Sweeney Todd runs at Chichester from  24th September - 5th November prior to a much anticipated West End transfer.

Sondheim always gathers such a great cast - Ball, Stauton...what the hell happened in Sweeney Todd the Movie??????????

Hi Michael,

Wrong choice of director in Tim Burton I think - was far too "off the wall" in casting and story telling terms!

You're right..but why did not he interferer when he heard the recorded stuff???? :)
