London Sweeney Adds Date & Cast The Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel-led Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, A Musical Thriller has added an extra date at the London Coliseum.

Along with the previously reported Thompson, Terfel and Philip Quast, we also now know the show will star Matthew Seadon-Young, Katie Hall, Jack North, Alex Gaumond, Rosalie Craig and John Owen-Jones. NBC Taps Nicole Scherzinger We’re all hoping that Nicole Scherzinger will reprise her acclaimed star turn in London’s Cats revival on Broadway, but before that she will appear in a new NBC comedy variety series this summer. Hosted by Marlon Wayans, I Can Do That! will challenge the former Pussy Cat Doll and five other celebrities to put on an entertainment show with skills they didn’t even know they had. So Scherzinger won’t be belting or dancing then, as we all know she can nail both a key change and a tango.
