The Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors has canceled its December 11 and 12 performances at the Westside Theatre following one breakthrough positive case of COVID-19 in the company.
The production plans to resume performances Tuesday, December 14. All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
The cast currently features Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) as Seymour, Emmy winner Tammy Blanchard (Life with Judy Garland, Gypsy) as Audrey, two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!, Falsettos) as Orin Scrivello, D.D.S, and Tom Alan Robbins (The Lion King, Head Over Heels) as Mushnik.
