We had cameras positioned all over the DCPA on April 15 to capture the excitement of Opening Night for the Theatre Company’s reimagining of Sweeney Todd, with new orchestrations by DeVotchka.

The gallery above includes photos from backstage before the show as cast and crew prepared, as well as the “fight call” pre-show rehearsal, the electrifying curtain call and the party that followed in the Seawell Ballroom. (Including an appearance by Broadway star Carly Hughes.)
