Join the company of Broadway's Sweeney Todd for the final two-show day of their Tony nominated run as Jonathan Christopher takes over Playbill's Instagram May 4. Christopher will be posting throughout the day, so make sure you're following @Playbill to keep up on all the action.

Christopher, brother to fellow Sweeney Todd company member Nicholas Christopher, is part of the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical's ensemble. The Tony nominated revival plays its final performance at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre May 5. The current cast is led by Tony winners Aaron Tveit and Sutton Foster as Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett, respectively.

Directed by Thomas Kail, the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical's 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 succeeded the production's original leading pair, Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford, who ended their run January 14.

Based on the Christopher Bond play of the same name, Sweeney Todd centers on its titular barber who seeks revenge on a corrupt judge and turns to murder, with neighbor and accomplice Mrs. Lovett ultimately discovering they can dispose of the evidence by serving up the most unsettling meat pies to the people of London.

The production features choreography by Steven Hoggett, scenic design by Mimi Lien, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, special effects design by Jeremy Chernick, and wig, hair, and make-up design by J. Jared Janas. Casting is by The Telsey Office, and Baseline Theatrical's Nick Lugo and James Hickey serve as general managers. Johnny Milani is production stage manager.
