Musical Directions by:
Sweeney Todd marks the first collaboration between Pitt Rep and the University’s Department of Music. The production involves more than 50 actors, set designers, and technicians and more than 60 Pitt musicians, who will provide the musical accompaniment to the dramatic story of a deranged barber who cuts his customers’ throats and then serves them as meat pies baked by his accomplice, Mrs. Lovett.
Sweeney Todd will star Richard Teaster, director of the Pitt Men’s Glee Club, in the title role; local actor and Pitt teaching artist-in-residence Theo Allyn as Mrs. Lovett; and Pitt teaching artist-in-residence Andy Nagraj as Judge Turpin. A dozen undergraduate students round out the cast, whose members have been getting intensive training in dance and vocals, as well as physical workouts with a fight choreographer.
