Texas Repertory Theatre continues its 5th anniversary season until Halloween with the delightful sci-fi spoof musical Little Shop of Horrors. Previewing this Wednesday and Thursday, and celebrating its gala opening night this Friday, this charming and tuneful musical seems certain tol please the entire family!
One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950’s Sci-Fi movies is full of soaring pop-rock music, lovable comic characters, and a man-eating plant from outer space! Little Shop of Horrors is a rock musical by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, about a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood. The music, composed by Menken in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown, includes several show-stoppers including “Skid Row (Downtown)”, “Somewhere That’s Green”, and “Suddenly, Seymour”, as well as the title song.
The Texas Repertory Theatre’s new production showcases the work of Seattle puppet artist Daniel Roberts, who has created the innovative new Audrey II for this production, and features Blythe Kirkwood, Joshua Estrada, Rachael Logue, Arianna Bermudez, Matthew Wade, Steven Fenley and Susan Draper among the cast.
