Manipulative villainess or plucky survivor? Wickedly wanton woman or innocent baker of pies? Mrs Lovett, of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s malevolently masterful musical SWEENEY TODD, is a fiendishly multifaceted character. The role has attracted the very cream of the world’s leading music theatre actresses. Read on for a look into what makes this devilish character tick.

Angela Lansbury created the role of Mrs Lovett in the original 1979 Broadway production of SWEENEY TODD. She shared her recollections of that special time interviews to promote the re-release of the original cast recording.

This is a story a demon barber of Fleet Street. Who is Mrs Lovett?” Back in New York, Sondheim played Lansbury Mrs Lovett’s opening song, “Worst Pies in London,” and, seeing the cockney humour that they had built in to the project, she was on board.
