The upcoming fall revival of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s Little Shop of Horrors will play an additional eight weeks at Off-Broadway's Westside Theatre. Directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), the production, which begins September 17, will now continue through January 19, 2020.
Little Shop features a cast led by Tony nominee Jonathan Groff (Hamilton, Mindhunter) as Seymour, the down-on-his-luck florist, Emmy winner Tammy Blanchard (Life with Judy Garland, Gypsy) as his crush, Audrey, and Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!, Falsettos) as Audrey's boyfriend Orin Scrivello, D.D.S. Tony nominee Gideon Glick (To Kill A Mockingbird, Significant Other) will play Seymour for two weeks, November 5–17, while Groff is on a scheduled leave.
In Little Shop, Seymour discovers a mysterious—and voracious—plant that suddenly thrusts him into an epic battle that will determine the fate of the entire human race.
The Off-Broadway cast also includes Tom Alan Robbins as Mushnik, Kingsley Leggs as The Voice of Audrey II, Ari Groover as Ronnette, Salome Smith as Crystal, Joy Woods as Chiffon, Stephen Berger, Chris Dwan, Kris Roberts, Chelsea Turbin, Eric Wright, and Teddy Yudain.
