The Broadway Center Stage production of Little Shop of Horrors plays the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ Eisenhower Theater October 24–28.
The cast includes How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor, seen on Broadway in The Graduate and Disgraced, as down-on-his-luck plant-shop worker Seymour, Tony nominee Megan Hilty (Wicked, Smash, Noises Off) as Audrey, Tony nominee Lee Wilkof (who originated the role of Seymour in the original Off-Broadway production) as Mr. Mushnik, Tony nominee Nick Cordero (A Bronx Tale, Bullets over Broadway) as Orin Scrivello, D.D.S., Amber Iman (Shuffle Along, national tour of Hamilton) as Crystal, Amma Osei (Rock of Ages) as Ronnette, and Allison Semmes (Motown ) as Chiffon.
Michael James Leslie, who originated the role of the Voice of the Plant in the Los Angeles, London, and Broadway productions of Little Shop, again voices Audrey II in the Kennedy Center presentation of the popular musical. Leslie recently replaced Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart, who departed the company due to unforeseen circumstances unrelated to the production, according to a Kennedy Center spokesperson.
The limited engagement also features 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.
