Santos is set to play the role of Anthony Hope, as announced by Atlantis on Tuesday over its Facebook page.

“We are proud to announce that Gerald Santos will be playing the role of Anthony in SWEENEY TODD!” Atlantis said.

Santos joins Tony award-winning actress Lea Salonga and rock icon Jett Pangan who will play the roles of Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd, respectively.

“I am excited to again be performing for my kababayans! It’s my first musical here since ‘Miss Saigon,’ and there really is no place like home! Filipinos are one of a kind as an audience,” Santos said, as quoted in a statement by Atlantis.

The musical’s director Bobby Garcia said Santos “everything you wish Anthony Hope would be.”

“Gerald impressed us all during his ‘Miss Saigon’ auditions a few years ago and I knew then that I wanted him to perform with us when he returned to Manila,” Garcia added.

“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” will open in October 2019 at The Theater at Solaire. (Editor: Julie Espinosa)
