A new murderous duo has taken over Fleet Street (via Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre), and we've got a first look at the new cast. Tony winners Sutton Foster and Aaron Tveit joined Broadway's Sweeney Todd as Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd, respectively, February 9, for a 12-week engagement. Also new to the company is Heartstoppers star Joe Locke, making his Broadway debut as Toby. Get a first look at the current cast with newly released production shots below.

New stars also mean a new Playbill cover. Purchase a copy of Foster and Tveit's Sweeney Todd Playbill program exclusively at The Playbill Store.

Directed by Thomas Kail, the revival was nominated for eight 2023 Tony Awards, and won Best Lighting Design of a Musical (Natasha Katz) and Best Sound Design of a Musical (Nevin Steinberg). The revival officially opened March 26, 2023. Foster and Tveit succeed the production's original leading pair, Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford, who ended their run January 14.
