Tony Award winner Hal Linden will be part of the American Musical Theatre of San Jose's production of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's sci-fi camp musical Little Shop of Horrors, scheduled to run Jan. 22-Feb. 3, 2008.
Linden, well known for his Emmy-winning work on television's "Barney Miller," will portray flower shop owner Mr. Mushnik with Christiane Noll (Frankenstein, Jekyll & Hyde) as Audrey and Josh Lamon (Wicked) as Seymor.
Joining the trio will be Todd Alan Johnson as the Dentist, Michael Mandell as the voice of Audrey II (while Gregg Rehrig is the plant itself) with Izetta Fang, Kristin McDonald and Adrienne Muller as the singing Urchins.
Tony-nominated director Gabriel Barre directs and choreographs the production with a creative team that also features William Liberatore (music director), Jean-Francois Revon (scenic consultant), Thomas G. Marquez (costume design), Derek Duarte (lighting design), Sharon Ridge (hair and makeup design) and Hage van Dijk (sound design).
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 WPA Theatre in 1982 starring Lee Wilkoff and Ellen Greene in a role that would become her signature.
