Looking for Last-Minute Tickets? Check This Month’s Calendar for new availability.
In 2014, Tooting Arts Club set about staging Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s iconic musical thriller SWEENEY TODD in Harrington’s–London’s oldest working pie and mash shop. Now, transported all the way from South London, we are delighted that Harrington’s has found its New York home within the walls of the Barrow Street Theatre.
TICKETS ON SALE THRU FEBRUARY 25TH
Please scroll down and read the following info - it’s all here to help you! -
before clicking on the BUY TICKETS link below.
If you’re interested in buying tickets for this week or next: you may just be in luck! Whenever possible we make last-minute releases for seats in excellent locations, so strongly encourage you to check this month’s calendar regularly.
For sold out performances, a wait-list opens up 1 hour prior to each curtain, and we do our best to squeeze folks in.
Instead of a formal theater setting, our production of SWEENEY TODD is set inside a 360-degree re-creation of Harrington’s. While there is no formal audience participation, the four center tables (B/C/D/E) are particularly close to the action, which primarily takes place on and around the shop’s service counter and these tables. All banquettes have upholstered seats and are at counters or tables, except for one row Downstairs (Row J) and one row Upstairs (Row BB).
At the point of purchasing your tickets, you will be presented with a seating diagram. In order to familiarize yourself with the shop layout in advance, a diagram can be viewed now by clicking ‘View Full Seating Chart’ to the right of this page.
Lower price seats are available in our “Twisting View” and “Partial View” locations. Please visit the “Twisting View and Partial View Locations” section of the FAQ page on our website for more information on these locations.
Our shop’s pie maker is former White House pastry chef Bill Yosses. Most, but not all, seating locations within the shop include the option to buy tickets that include pre-show pie and mash cooked fresh daily by Bill. For an additional $22.50 on top of the price of your ticket, you will get one pie – meat (chicken) or veg, a generous helping of mashed potato with an optional parsley sauce known as “liquor,”, and a beer, glass of wine, or other non-alcholic drink. Pie and mash may only be purchased in advance. To be clear, due to space constraints, pre-show pie and mash is not available for purchase with every seat location.
Pie and mash is served beginning 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to each curtain, and those who have purchased it may arrive any time after that until 30 minutes before curtain (at which point the last pie is served). All tables must be cleared 15 minutes later for performer safety. We encourage you to arrive on the early side so your meal is not rushed.
If you’re not dining with us, you’re welcome to enter the shop beginning 15 minutes prior to show time. Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks may be purchased from the bar in the lobby before each show and during intermission. No outside food or drinks are permitted.
Running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes including one twenty minute intermission.
You will receive an email confirmation from OvationTix immediately after purchasing tickets including your seating location(s). Physical tickets will only be printed at the Barrow Street Theatre box office, and will be available for pickup beginning 2 hours prior to the performance you are attending. All guests will be required to show photo ID that matches the name on the ticket order. Please understand this is for your protection: ticket fraud and third party re-selling, often at extremely higher (and unlawful) prices, has become a pervasive problem in our industry.
Instead of a formal theater setting, our production of SWEENEY TODD is set inside a 360-degree replica environment of Harrington’s. While there is no formal audience participation, the four center tables are very close to the action. All seats are at counters or tables, except for a few in the Downstairs section of the shop.
The action of the performance takes place Downstairs on and around the shop’s service counter and four nearby tables. While there is no formal audience participation, certain seats in the shop—particularly those at the four tables—are very close to the action.
The Downstairs of the shop is fully ADA compliant. As Greenwich House is an early 1900s building, however, a ramp is required for wheelchairs to access the lobby and Downstairs of the shop from the street. Any guest with mobility issues should purchase tickets Downstairs. Please contact the box office after booking to let us know about any access requirements by calling 212-243-6262 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

The hit off-Broadway revival of “Sweeney Todd” stars Broadway veteran Norm Lewis in the title role
Jenna has the sweets and Nellie has the meats. Between Joe’s Diner and Mrs. Lovett’s Pie Shop, theatre-goers are getting pie in abundance this season at the Brooks Atkinson and Barrow Street Theatres.
You might not know this man but you sure will know this woman, the effervescent Carolee Carmello.
“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” is currently running in an off-Broadway revival.
We’ve always known that Matt Doyle was one of the most talented performers in on the musical theatre stage
The problem with successful musicals is how to keep them that way. Often the difference between a borderline hit and a smash depends more on the second cast, and the third, than the first.
On a recent Sunday around noon, Bill Yosses, the former White House executive pastry chef, was standing in the middle of the West Village with two insulated black crates…
Many great chefs say that they found their calling early on when they were children cooking beside a grandparent or parent.
The new stars of this immersive revival talk scaring audiences and chowing down.
Sweeney Todd is a piece of theater that should make you lose your appetite. The grisly musical by Stephen Sondheim tells the story of a demonic barber whose clients become the filling for meat pies.
Following the departure of the original London stars of the Tooting Arts Club immersive staging of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street Tony nominees Norm Lewis and Carolee Carmello stepped into the lead roles at the Barrow Street Theatre.
Jeremy Secomb and Siobhain McCarthy talk about their roles in a new production of “Sweeney Todd.”
t’s a long way from South London’s urban, multicultural melting pot district, Tooting, to New York, but the demon barber once traversed the globe, so should we be surprised?
If you’ve seen a production of the show, you’re probably wondering about the meat. If you haven’t, well, it has been 38 years since “Sweeney Todd” debuted, so the statute of limitations for spoilers has long expired.
With real pie and mash served on-site, off-Broadway audiences come together to share a uniquely English — and unarguably American — experience.
The ‘Scandal’ actor will play the title character in a spring 2017 limited run, starring opposite Carolee Carmello.

Former White House Pastry Chef Named ‘Official Pie Maker’ for Immersive SWEENEY TODD Off-Broadway
The Barrow Street Theater will be reconfigured into a pie shop to host a British production of the musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”
An old pie and mash shop is to be meticulously recreated in the heart of the West End to host London’s first pop-up
Rachel Edwards, the producer behind ‘Sweeney Todd’, talks to Time Out about transferring a whole south London pie shop to the West End for the latest revival of Sondheim’s musical.
It was a bit of an out-of-brain experience,” admitted Rachel Edwards, recalling the evening when Stephen Sondheim turned up to watch her company’s performance in a south London pie and mash shop.

“A TREAT FOR ALL OF THE SENSES, EVEN TASTE!”
Good old-fashioned “pie and mash” has been a London food tradition since the days of Queen Victoria. A small meat pie and a generous helping of mashed potato with an optional addition of the steaming parsley sauce known as “liquor,” pie and mash became the staple dish for many hungry families and workers alike. Affordable, filling and tasty–it was often the only hot meal one might eat in a day.
In 2014, Tooting Arts Club staged SWEENEY TODD in Harrington’s–London’s oldest working pie and mash shop. Steeped in history and atmosphere, this quintessential Victorian pie shop proved to be the perfect chamber of horrors for this iconic Gothic tale. Before each show, audience members were welcomed to arrive early to Harrington’s for their very own meal of pie and mash.
We will continue this pre-show tradition with our guests at the Barrow Street Theatre and we’re delighted that former White House pastry chef Bill Yosses has taken on the role as our official pie maker.
“Whatever pie you like, he will make it, and it will be the best pie you have ever eaten.”
– President Barack Obama
Since departing the White House in 2014, Bill “The Crustmaster” Yosses – as nicknamed by President Obama – has operated his own pie company, The Perfect Pie, in New York City. While working from an original recipe – including meat (chicken) and veg options – Bill serves fresh pie and mash beginning 1 hour and 15 minutes before each performance. Pie and mash – plus a beer, glass of wine, ginger ale, or water – may be purchased (in advance only) with tickets for $22.50.
One dish brimming with history, an authentic slice of Victorian London if there ever was one–“God that’s good!“
Meat Pie and Mash
Flaky Crust Chicken Pot Pie with Mushrooms, Carrots, Onions, Jerusalem Artichokes, Black Truffle Zest, served with Yukon Gold Smashed Potatoes and optional Italian Parsley & Herbs Sauce.

Flaky Crust Vegetarian Pot Pie with Carrots, Onions, Asparagus, Corn, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Truffles, Squash, Fava beans, Potatoes, Cauliflower, Fresh Herbs, and Aged Parmesan Cheese served with Yukon Gold Smashed Potatoes and optional Italian Parsley & Herbs Sauce.

Any guest with mobility issues should purchase tickets Downstairs.

Twisting View seats are located in the center of the action of the production. However, because we mimic the seating of an actual pie shop, these seats orient audience members away from the optimal view, and one must reposition oneself to see much of the staging. We have designed our banquette benches to comfortably accommodate this shift.
Some audience members love the experience of being in the middle of the action, which can be more thrilling, especially for the lower price. But other audience members don’t like the discomfort of having to frequently turn one’s view or position.
Partial View seating locations are in the second row (BB) of our Upstairs and have visual obstructions during certain moments of the performance.
As of July, 2017, we have improved the visibility of the sightlines and improved audience experience in this section by removing a pie shop shelf in the front row of the Upstairs. Having done so, this creates better sightlines for viewers in both rows of the Upstairs. However, it still does have some visual obstructions. This change for better sightlines does result in an inability to purchase pie and mash in the Upstairs section.
The BARROW STREET THEATRE, founded in 2003, is an intimate off-Broadway theater with an enduring history of inviting some of the most exceptional, innovative and highly acclaimed theatrical experiences to its confines.
Generally a 200-seat black box theater, it has been fully reconfigured into a 130-seat, one and 1/2 story recreation of Harrington’s – London’s oldest operating pie and mash shop – where our production originated in 2014. Barrow Street Theatre is situated within Greenwich House, and with it, the larger West Village community that surrounds it.
Located on the corner of Seventh Avenue South and Barrow Street, Greenwich House is one of NYC’s most treasured and long-running not-for-profits. Now 114-years-old, it opened its doors on Thanksgiving, 1902 with the mission to improve the living conditions among the predominately immigrant population in Greenwich Village. Throughout that period, and on a daily basis today, Greenwich House’s programs include a nursery school, after school programs and a senior center amongst many others.
