Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan will return to the cast of Little Shop of Horrors at the Westside Theatre, reprising his performance as Seymour in the off-Broadway revival. Jordan, who reopened the production as Seymour in 2021 following the pandemic shutdown, will take over the role for eight weeks only from July 25-September 17. Tony winner Matt Doyle, who currently leads the production, will play his final performance on July 16.

The musical tells the Faustian tale of an assistant florist who comes under the sway of a bloodthirsty plant.
