Poster art for the Off-Broadway revival of “Little Shop of Horrors.”
It’s shaping up to be The Battle of ‘Little Shop’ this fall, as several new productions promise to introduce the Off-Broadway cult favorite to a new generation of audiences. Audiences on both coasts are bracing themselves for revivals that both start previews on September 17.
The New York production will co-star Jonathan Groff (Hamilton) and Tammy Blanchard as Seymore and Audrey, while Pasadena Playhouse’s production will feature George Salazar (Be More Chill) and Pose‘s Mj Rodriguez. Even though the east coast is ahead by three hours, the Pasadena Playhouse production has gotten a jump on the buzz thanks to a newly released video featuring Salazar singing “Grow for Me.”
Lyric Stage Company of Boston is also presenting the show from August 30 through October 6. Who says three’s a crowd?
