Can it be true?
John Doyle’s acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd — you know, the one where the actors also play all the instruments — is going on tour and SAN FRANCISCO is the first stop?
Yes indeed. The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and the worst pies in London will soon be mere blocks from Union Square. BroadwayWorld.com broke the story today. Read it here.
The gist of it is that Sweeney, which starred Patti LuPone and Michael Cerveris on Broadway, will play a limited engagement at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco before heading out on tour. Dates are Aug. 30-Oct. 14th.
