LONDON'S LATEST THEATRE NEWS

SWEENEY TODD TICKETS

Sweeney Todd transfers to Adelphi Theatre Theatre from 10th March 2012. It has been confirmed today that John Doyle's production of the Stephen Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd - which finishes at Chichister - will transfer to Adelphi Theatre Theatre from 10th March 2012. Tickets for performances at The New Ambassadors are now on sale through now.
This new production of Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical is presented by the Watermill Theatre’s company of actor-musicians and comes into the West End following a successful regional tour.
When the production opened in London The Financial Times described it as "a fine, tight-knit ensemble production... splendidly claustrophobic and urgent" and The Independent said it was a "wonderfully fresh and fierce, small-scale version," adding that "what the production sometimes lacks in technical finesse, it makes up in atmosphere, ensemble spirit, versatility and acumen."

This production, which comes into London's West End following a season at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, stars Christian Slater.

Sweeney Todd:
"a fine, tight-knit ensemble production"
[10 August] John Doyle's production of the Stephen Sondheim musical Sweeney Todd opened at The Trafalgar Studios at the Whitehall Theatre on 27 July 2004.
This new production of Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical is presented by the Watermill Theatre’s company of actor-musicians and comes into the West End following a successful regional tour.
Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, is based on a 19th century legend of a half-mad London barber, who is driven to crime when a malevolent judge takes his wife and child from him. His plan for revenge includes a cut-throat partnership with Mrs. Lovett, an enterprising bar mistress, who is soon producing the tastiest meat pies in all London.
When the production opened in London The Financial Times described it as "a fine, tight-knit ensemble production... splendidly claustrophobic and urgent."
"This wonderfully fresh and fierce, small-scale version" The Independent wrote, "What the production sometimes lacks in technical finesse, it makes up in atmosphere, ensemble spirit, versatility and acumen."
The Guardian highlighted that "this version is strong on melodramatic horror, low on social resonance," adding that "vital plot-points get lost in Doyle's pocket-sized staging."
"You may miss the crowds of Londoners gorging on Ma Lovett’s cannibal pies" commented The Times, "but the compensation is theatrical originality and a successful awakening of the audience’s imaginations."
Sweeney Todd continues up to 9 October 2004, more details....

Camelot: "an amiably pleasing show"
[9 August] Ian Talbot's revival of the Alan Jay Lerner/ Frederick Loewe musical Camelot opened at The Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park, on 23 July 2004.
From their first meeting Arthur and Guenevere seem a perfect match. When Lancelot arrives from France all three must battle with their emotions in this powerful love triangle. Meanwhile Arthur and his knights of the round table try to defend Camelot from foes with revenge on their agenda.
The cast features Russ Abbot as the lovable fool 'Sir Pellinore'.
When the production opened The Guardian described it as "an amiably pleasing show" and The Daily Telegraph commented that "the first half-a-dozen numbers are catchy, tongue-in-cheek affairs; thereafter, hokum and unearned sentimentality hold sway."
The Daily wrote: "Seventeen humable songs hung on a hokey storyline. That's one way to view this 45-year-old musical... Far better, though, to see Camelot as a light night out, here made memorable by the comedian Russ Abbot."
"You often wish the show had more bite and, despite the occasional sharp rhyme, more wit. Still" said The Times, "there are some nice tunes and some enjoyable acting."
Camelot continues in repertory up to 4 September 2004, more details....

Billy Elliot The Musical delays opening
now 11 May 2005
[9 August] It has now been confirmed that Billy Elliot The Musical will have its official opening on 11 May 2005 at the Victoria Palace Theatre, following previews from 24 March.
When this production was officially launched in June 2004 it was scheduled to open for a Christmas season in December 2004 at a theatre in Newcastle prior to its London opening at the Victoria Palace Theatre on 5 April 2005, following previews from 11 March. But then last month it was announced the proposed pre-London West End run at Newcastle was being cancelled, the reason given by the producers being that the project has evolved into one of such magnitude that constraints of timing and budget would make it impractical to stage it on a temporary basis outside London.
Inorder to allow the creative team and the young casts to have time to work on the production during the previews, as usually happens, without the pressure and exhaustion of performances every night it has now been decided that the show will play a reduced performance schedule during the seven week preview period, with performances generally on Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays only.
