Casting is now complete for the Broadway Center Stage production of Little Shop of Horrors, which will play the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Eisenhower Theater October 24–28.
As previously reported, How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor, seen on Broadway in The Graduate and Disgraced, will play down-on-his-luck plant-shop worker Seymour with Tony nominee Megan Hilty (Wicked, Smash, Noises Off) as Audrey and Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin, Hamilton) as Audrey II. Tony nominee Lee Wilkof, who originated the role of Seymour in the original Off-Broadway production, will play Mr. Mushnik.
These artists will be joined by Tony nominee Nick Cordero (A Bronx Tale, Bullets over Broadway) as Orin Scrivello, D.D.S., Amber Iman (Shuffle Along, the national tour of Hamilton) as Crystal, Amma Osei (Rock of Ages) as Ronnette, and Allison Semmes (Motown ) as Chiffon.
The limited engagement will also feature musical direction by Joey Chancey, set design by Tony winner Donyale Werle, lighting design by Cory Pattak, costume design by Jennifer Caprio, sound design by Tony winner Kai Harada, and projection design by Alex Basco Koch.
Conceived and executive-produced by Jeffrey Finn, the Broadway Center Stage series launched last season with semi-staged productions of Chess, In the Heights, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. In addition to Little Shop, this season will feature Meredith Willson’s The Music Man (starring Tony nominee Norm Lewis) and The Who’s Tommy.
Little Shop of Horrors is based on the 1960 cult movie The Little Shop of Horrors. The musical version, with music by Alan Menken and book and lyrics by the late Howard Ashman, debuted Off-Broadway at the WPA Theatre in 1982 starring Wilkof and Ellen Greene. The 1986 movie musical, based on the stage production, featured Greene reprising her stage role as Audrey opposite Rick Moranis as Seymour. Ashman penned the screenplay for the film.
