Sweeney Todd Revival Cast Recording to Be Released This September

After much anticipation, the wait for the Sweeney Todd cast recording featuring Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford is nearly over. Groban took to Instagram today to officially announce that the upcoming recording, produced by Alex Lacamoire and co-produced by Thomas Kail, will be available to stream beginning September 8, 2023.

The cast recording will feature Jonathan Tunick’s expansive original 26-player orchestration from the original production. You can pre-save the album here, plus listen to Ashford’s performance of “The Worst Pies in London,” which was released today, here.

In addition to Groban and Ashford as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett, respectively, the Broadway cast recording of Sweeney Todd will feature Jordan Fisher (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen) as Anthony, Gaten Matarazzo (Stranger Things) as Tobias, Tony Award winner and Laurence Olivier Award nominee Ruthie Ann Miles (The King and I) as Beggar Woman, Maria Bilbao (On Your Feet!) as Johanna, Jamie Jackson (The Last Ship) as Judge Turpin, John Rapson (Les Misérables) as Beadle Bamford, and Nicholas Christopher (Hamilton) as Pirelli.

Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s landmark musical, from an adaptation by Christopher Bond, tells the tale of a resourceful pie shop owner and a vengeful barber out for blood. After he’s sent away by a corrupt judge, Sweeney returns to London years later seeking his long-lost family, and forms an unlikely partnership with Mrs. Lovett, who serves up pies underneath his former shop. Together, they wreak havoc on Fleet Street and serve up the hottest – and most unsettling – pies in London.

For the first time since 1980, Broadway audiences will experience Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning score as it was performed in the original production—with Jonathan Tunick’s original 26-player orchestration on an epic scale. Tony Award-winning director Thomas Kail (Hamilton) helms the return of this musical thriller starring Tony and Grammy nominee Josh Groban (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) as Sweeney Todd, and Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford (Sunday in the Park with GeorgeKinky Boots) as Mrs. Lovett.
