Josh Groban has a new dog, and George is already looking like his dad! So much so that they even have the same hairdo, aka bedhead, in the morning.

Seriously, how arfdorable are the two of them? I bet George can’t wait to be spending more time with his dad when he ends his run next month with Sweeney Todd.

Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford will not be celebrating a year with Sweeney Todd because they are leaving the Broadway musical at 46 weeks.

The producers made the announcement today: “They are finally heading to the seaside. Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford will be departing Fleet Street on January 14, but you still have more chances to brave the chair dearie. Our tale is extending into Spring 2024!”

The producers did not reveal who will be replacing them, but I expect that we will find out soon.

Before they do. Groban talked about his departure. “The countdown begins. My heart is heavy but filled with deep gratitude to announce my final performance as Sweeney Todd,” the singer wrote. “To hold the torch of this monumental role for all of this year, alongside my dear friend and partner in crime @annaleighashford, has been nothing short of a life changing experience. This brilliant cast and crew and orchestra have given me so many gifts every single day. I will miss sharing Fleet Street with them, but will forever be grateful to have given audiences Sondheim’s masterpiece alongside them these last many months. I will truly cherish and enjoy to the fullest the weeks ahead that I have left. ❤️”

So if you want to see him in the production, get your tickets now because there are only a limited amount of shows left to see them.

There is a new COVID-19 variant that is causing it to spread quickly again. Therefore, people are getting sick again. And one of those people is

The singer announced the news today, and he regretfully told his fans he will need to be taking a break from Sweeney Todd on Broadway until he is better.

And until then, Nicholas Christopher will be playing the lead role. And Groban had nothing but praise for his understudy.

Get well soon!


Sweeney Todd gets Hamiltonified
May 5th, 2023 under Josh Groban, Lin-Manuel Miranda. [ Comments: none ]

Sweeney Todd just moved into the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Broadway. It is located next to the Richard Rodgers Theater, where Hamilton is still going on. So Lin-Manuel Miranda, being the neighborly man that he is, thought he would invite his neighbors for a song, and they said yes.

So today, both casts got together and told the story of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street to the music of the Founding Father who was shot and killed in a duel gone wrong.

There really isn’t much to say except that it is brilliant. Josh Groban, AnnaLeigh Ashford, and everyone else who performed at today’s Ham4Ham hit it out of the park! Bravo! Bravo!

But I have to say, as a NYer who spent a lot of time on Broadway. I would be so pissed if traffic was blocked on Friday night because of this. Am I the only one who felt that way when they saw all of those fans on the street blocking traffic? So rude!


BTWF: Josh Groban in Sweeney Todd
April 24th, 2023 under Before They Were Famous, Josh Groban. [ Comments: none ]

Before Josh Groban was starring in Sweeney Todd on Broadway, he was in the ensemble in the production of it at Interlochen Center for the Arts. I wonder if in 1996 they knew that the 15-year-old was going to be the one who was bound for the Great White Way.

BTW did you spot him?
