Audrey II will be on the hunt of blood for even longer as Little Shop of Horrors extends its off-Broadway run through to March 8, 2020! The production, which opened to rave reviews in October, was originally extended through to January 20.
Gideon Glick, who stepped into the role of Seymour when current star Jonathan Groff took a scheduled break earlier in November, will take over the role full time from January 21.
The current cast also includes Tammy Blanchard as Audrey, Christian Borle as Orin Scrivello D.D.S, Kingsley Leggs as the voice of Audrey II, Tom Alan Robbins as Mushnik, Ari Groover as Ronnette, Salome Smith as Crystal and Joy Woods as Chiffon.
With music by Alan Menken and book and lyrics by Howard Ashman this off-Broadway revival of the pairs hit 80s musical is directed by Michael Mayer and choreographed by Ellenore Scott.
As the dejected Seymour languishes in the floral shop on the down-and-out street of Skid Row he discovers a strange new plant... Affectionately naming it "Audrey II" after his crush at the shop, Seymour is shocked to find that his unusual plant has developed a soulful singing voice, a potty mouth, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood.
As Audrey II grows bigger and bigger, and its thirst for blood becomes unrelenting, the carnivorous plant promises a lifetime of fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a fresh supply of the red stuff. Just when it's too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II's extra-terrestrial origins and its drive for complete world domination.
Little Shop of Horrors is now playing Upstairs at the Westside Theater through to March 8, 2020.
