The Theatre Project presents Barbicide, A haunting reflection of the Sweeney Todd legend, with just a dash of Mafioso mythology. Barbicide is a noirish revenge play of interwoven monologues, underscoring the consequences of coincidence and fate. From the team that brought you Bitch, fresh off its sold out run at The Historic Players Theatre, comes Barbicide. It’s a whole new twist on Fleet Street.
The new play Barbicide will celebrate its World Premiere off-Broadway run at The Historic Players Theatre beginning October 4. Barbicide is written by playwright Sean Pomposello and directed by Christian Amato. The show's cast features Arthur Aulisi, Paulette Oliva, Douglas Sharf and Angie Atkinson.
The cast for this modern adaptation of Sweeney Todd gathered together on August 25 at West Street Studios in Brooklyn for their first-ever photo shoot. Check out the photos below!
