PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!

One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a house-hold name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, “Beauty And The Beast” and “Aladdin.” Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, “Little Shop Of Horrors” never fails to entertain.

Excellent show, fabulous cast

Brent Davis and Caitlin Wade were expected to be fabulous and they delivered with great singing and acting. Caitlin's accent was perfect -- not too much but very believable. Brent proved his ability to steal a show in Aladdin and again delivered a solid performance, this time as the lead.

I was blown away by Michael Reep! What talent. The clarity and strength of his baritone voice as both Mushnik and Audrey 2, was the highlight. The song he and Brent sang gave me chills. And Michael is not only a singer, he transcended his 15 years and became a middle-aged shop owner right down to his carriage. An awesome performance.

Hannah Herndon's voice was one of the strongest, truest in the cast. And it's always a delight to see Sarah Stitt in anything. Great job ladies.

As always FCFT put together a fun evening out. I did not know the show and am a tough sell on fantasy but bought it hook, line and sinker. Great show Tammy! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
One inquiring mind wants to know... by Okely Dokely
How was it possible for one actor to play both Mushnik and the voice of Audrey 2? Mushnik is onstage and has lines in between Audrey 2's singing lines during Suppertime. Were the vocals for Suppertime pre-recorded, or was Mushnik doing some incredible ventriloquism?
Huh? by cathead67
I was thinking the same thing Mark.
Hmmmm by bethnicholson
Actually, it's a great question and one I don't have the answer for. I remember that now because I wondered how Michael was two places at once. I was there and don't know. I'm guessing it was prerecorded, but if it was it was great recording because I couldn't tell and did wonder. And I'm not sure I want to know -- the magic of the theater. But for those who didn't see it, rest assured it was well-done and seamless.
Clarification... by MusicalGal
For the song that both Mr. Mushnik and Audrey 2 sing together, Mr. Reep pre-recorded the Audrey 2 part.
