Depp Won't Do Sweeney Todd On Broadway

Subscribe to Johnny Depp alerts

SWEENEY TODD star Johnny Depp is set to disappoint fans hoping to see him reprise the role on the Broadway stage, insisting he'll only tread the boards "when hell freezes over". The actor makes his big screen singing debut in the movie adaptation of Steven Sondheim's musical about a barbaric London barber. But Depp found singing a traumatic experience - and has no intention of repeating it any time soon. He says, "When hell freezes over. That's very flattering, but no, I think I am done with singing."

I knew this was going to happen. Johnny said in a recent interview this was a one time deal. As much as I would love to hear him sing some more, I'm just going to have to be happy with the movie. Being very shy, he'd rather stick to movies than a live audience performance. Maybe somewhere down the line, but hardly likely.
