After months of rehearsal we finally got to perform Sweeney Todd at Moliere Theatre in Tokyo. Playing Lovett was a challenge, but one I was happy to take on. I love the complexity of Sondheim's beautiful score and I imagine I will continue to hear the songs in my dreams for quite some time.
As well as the challenge of singing the score I ended up having to deal with vocal issues just before the show. I'm not sure that I would have coped without the support of the members of the cast and crew who treated me so well during the production.
It was an experience I won't forget and I'm grateful to have been given the chance to perform.
