She also starred on Broadway as the Beggar Woman opposite Patti LuPone in the critically acclaimed, Tony Award-winning revival of Sweeney Todd directed by John Doyle. Her performance was widely recognized. Opera News declared “DiMarzio does impressive instantaneous transitions between vulgar and soulful” and Variety also confirmed that “Diana DiMarzio has striking moments as the Beggar Woman”. Her greatest personal acclaim came from Stephen Sondheim when he thanked her for “singing the role as I originally had intended!”

She reprised the role across the country in the First National Tour, playing such theaters as San Francisco’s ACT and the Ahmanson in LA, again to winning notices. She was seen as the Beggar Woman in the Michigan Opera's production of Sweeney Todd as well as a production with the Virginia Opera and was invited to Munich, Germany to sing the role in the 60th Anniversary Jubilee Concert with the Münchner Rundfunkorchester under the baton of Ulf Schirmer.
