Broadway stars Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford lead NPR’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street Tiny Desk Concert. Watch!
Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd is not your typical feel-good Broadway musical, which is probably why I love it… now. I didn’t always like the show; I first saw it when I was a kid, and let me tell you, I had nightmares for weeks afterward. The Tim Burton movie (starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter) drew me back in, and I’ve seen several stage productions since. Now, it’s back on Broadway, and cast members Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford teamed with NPR for a Tiny Desk Concert!
In addition to Groban and Ashford, other outstanding Sweeney Todd musicians and cast members perform during Tiny Desk Concert, including Daniel Yearwood, Maria Bilbao, and Joanna Carpenter. You can watch the entire concert below:
