December 1, 2023 | 0 Comments

‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’ – a Broadway musical which includes Nicholas and Jonathan Christopher — has earned a Grammy nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.

Nicholas Christopher plays the role of Adolfo Pirelli, while the ensemble cast includes his brother Jonathan Christopher; the talented brothers are continuing a family tradition in entertainment, as they are the sons of Hamilton town crier Ed Christopher.

On the full Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street album of over 30 songs, Jonathan Christopher is credited by name on the song ‘The Letter’, while Nicholas Christopher is credited by name on the ‘The Ballad of Sweeney Todd’ and ‘The Contest.”

Bermudian singers are making a remarkable showing in the Grammy Nominations, as in addition to the two brothers working on this Grammy nominated album, an album by reggae artist Collie Buddz has been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Reggae Album category, which is believed to be the first time a Bermudian singer has earned that distinction.
