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 MAY 27, 2018
Please scroll down and read the following info - it’s all here to help you! -
before clicking on the BUY TICKETS link below.

Our shop’s pie maker is former White House pastry chef Bill Yosses.  Most seats within the shop (except Row J) include the option to buy a pre-show meal of pie and mash cooked fresh daily by Bill.  We offer three types of pie for either $22.50 (meat and veg) or $29.00 (beef wellington), and the price includes pie, a side of mashed potatoes, an optional herbed parsley sauce known as “liquor” plus either beer, wine or a non-alcoholic beverage.  This meal is a substantial main course portion and won’t leave you feeling hungry!  Pie and mash may only be purchased in advance, up until noon on the day of a performance.

For more information about Bill’s delicious pies, please visit the Pie & Mash section.

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.

Instead of a traditional theater layout, 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 are particularly close to the staging.  Most of the action of the play takes place on and around the shop’s service counter and these tables.

At the point of purchasing your tickets, you will be presented with a seating diagram.  You can familiarize yourself with the shop layout in advance by clicking the “View Full Seating Chart” to the right of this page.

Our Immersive section includes the four tables and two counters closest to the Service Counter.  The immersive nature of the show means that if you’re sitting at any of these tables or counters, the action happens all around you.  You may have to twist or turn your head from time to time.

If you’d prefer to watch the show facing straight ahead, we suggest our Forward View and Upstairs seats.

Lower price seats are available in our Twisting View and Partial View locations.

All of the seats are cushioned and have backs, most are banquette-style seating.  Seats in Rows A, F and J are slightly taller chairs for better viewing. Footrests can be requested at the box office.

What’s special about the show is this unusual layout, but we know it’s a lot to comprehend.  More information about all of the seats can be found in the Seating Locations section of the FAQs.

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.

Lottery tickets are available daily. Click here.

SEATING CHART

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. The seats toward the front of the shop are at counters or tables. Those in Rows J, AA, and BB have no counters or tables in front of them.

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 boxoffice@sweeneytoddnyc.com.

“A TREAT FOR ALL OF THE SENSES, EVEN TASTE!”

THE TRADITION OF PIE AND MASH

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.

LONDON TO NEW YORK CITY

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 have continued 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

 Every seat in the shop includes the option to buy a pre-show meal of pie and mash cooked fresh daily by Bill. We offer three types of pie for either $22.50 (meat and veg) or $29.00 (beef wellington), and the price includes pie, a side of mashed potatoes, an optional herbed parsley sauce known as “liquor,” plus either beer, wine, or a non-alcoholic beverage. This meal is a substantial main course portion and won’t leave you feeling hungry! Pie and mash should be purchased in advance, up until noon the day of a performance. However, we often have extra pies that we sell at the door during pie service if you change your mind last minute.

One dish brimming with history, an authentic slice of Victorian London if there ever was one–“God that’s good!“

MENU

Our pre-show pie & mash menu is below; included in each item is a range of the veggies that Chef Yosses may select from, depending on what is in season or looking particularly delicious from our purveyors. A full list of possible ingredients can be viewed on our FAQ page. If you have a particular food allergy you’re concerned about, please email us at info@sweeneytoddnyc.com.

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.

Is there late seating and/or re-entry?

There is no late seating or re-entry, unfortunately, due to the nature of the staging and safety of our performers. If you need to leave the shop during the performance, we will only be able to re-seat you after the intermission.

Pie & Mash

When is pie served?

Pre-show pie and mash service begins 1 hour 15 minutes prior to curtain.  Those who have purchased pie and mash in advance may arrive starting then up until 30 minutes before curtain, when the last pie is served.

We are unable to make any modifications to our pie & mash recipe. Please check the full list of our ingredients in the next FAQ question.

Yes. The pie order is not placed until noon on the day of weekday performances, and the night before performances on Saturday and Sunday. To add a pie to your order, please call 866-811-4111. If it’s after the deadline, swing by when the pie shop opens (1 hour 15 minutes before the performance). The chef usually makes a few extra pies, which we sell at the door during pie service.

Beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks may be purchased a la carte from the Barrow Street Theatre lobby bar before each show and during intermission, and may be taken into the shop.

No outside food or drinks are permitted.

If you’d like to change your pie order, please call 212-243-6262 1-5pm Monday thru Friday.

Accessibility

Is the Barrow Street Theatre and the shop ADA accessible?

Yes. 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 boxoffice@sweeneytoddnyc.com.

Buying Tickets

What is the maximum number of tickets that can be purchased within one order?

The maximum number of tickets that can be purchased within one order is 9. Please see the “Are there group sales?” tab for additional information.

Why can’t I print out or pick up my tickets ahead of time?

All guests will receive an email confirmation from OvationTix immediately after purchasing tickets, including seating location(s).

Seating Locations

Where should I sit?

This varies from one individual to another, but we will give you some examples of previous customers:

Anthony likes to be a part of the action, and doesn’t mind a little attention and thrill now and then, so he chooses the seats in the Immersive section, knowing he may have to shift his body or neck to follow certain bits of action from time to time. Premium Immersive are the best seats in the house with the clearest most direct views.

The Forward View seats allows one to stay close to the action without being in the action. Nellie prefers this location because she can watch the show unfold in the “three rows perpendicular to the counters in the immersive section. This is the best way to see the show with little to no twisting or turning.

Benjamin prefers the Upstairs section for the most traditional theater experience and an overview of the entire production with a great view from above. It also provides a direct forward view of the production.

What’s the deal with Twisting View seats?

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.

What’s the deal with Partial View seats?

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. The heads of the audience members in front of you in may block your view of what is going on downstairs. The ceiling also dips down, blocking any action that takes place at the top of the stairs.

Where is the stage?

Instead of a traditional theater layout, 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 are particularly close to the staging.  Most of the action of the play takes place on and around the shop’s service counter and these tables.

Our Immersive section includes the four tables and two counters closest to the Service Counter.  The immersive nature of the show means that if you’re sitting at any of these tables or counters, the action happens all around you.  You may have to twist or turn your head from time to time.

If you’d prefer to watch the show facing straight ahead, we suggest our Forward View seats.

Lower price seats are available in our Twisting View and Partial View locations.

All of the seats are cushioned and have backs, most are banquette-style seating.  Seats in Rows A, F and J are slightly taller chairs for better viewing. Footrests can be requested at the box office.

ABOUT BARROW THEATRE

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.

ABOUT GREENWICH HOUSE

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.
