I'm slowly but surely meeting all of the original cast members of Sweeney Todd. Winter nights seem to be best for such an endeavor. Tonight, February 9, 2009, I met Ken Jennings! He was the original Tobias.
On February 4, 2008, I met Sweeney himself, Len Cariou.
On February 11, 2007, I met Victor Garber, the original Anthony.
On February 21, 2006, I met Sarah Rice. She was the original Johanna.
On January 26, 2006, I met Angela Lansbury, the original Mrs. Lovett, for the first time.
That just leaves four characters. I guess I need to wander over to the Billy Elliot stage door to meet the original Beggar Woman, Merle Louise.
Anybody know where I can find Edmund Lyndeck (Judge Turpin), Joaquin Romaguera (Pirelli) and Jack Eric Williams (the Beadle)?
