LIttle Shop of Horrors to Close Up Shop on August 22
The original production of Little Shop had a lengthy Off-Broadway run beginning in 1992 and spawned a film version in 1986. The Broadway revival made news last summer when, after a Florida tryout, most of the cast and creative team -- including original director Connie Grappo -- were dismissed. The show opened on Broadway last October with direction by Jerry Zaks, choreography by Kathleen Marshall, and musical direction by Henry Aronson. It currently stars Joey Fatone, Jessica-Snow Wilson, Robert Evan, and Rob Bartlett. Michael-Leon Wooley, Carla J. Hargrove, DeQuina Moore, Trisha Jeffrey, Martin P. Robinson, Anthony Asbury, Bill Remington, and Matt Vogel are also in the cast.
