It's everyone's favorite boy-meets-girl, plant-eats-world love story: Little Shop of Horrors. Take a musical journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where a blood-thirsty plant from another world eagerly awaits its next victim. Seductive, tragic and full of delightfully demented humor, this long-running Off-Broadway musical comedy is based on Roger Corman's B-movie and was later turned into a Broadway show and an Academy Award-nominated film starring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin. Now the intimate Cupcake Theater stages this campy classic with book and lyrics from Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken, the legendary team behind the scores for Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Enjoy a night of bloody good fun with doo-wop inspired songs like "Skid Row," "Somewhere That's Green," "Feed Me" and "Suddenly, Seymour." Learn More
Take the Points is a comedy for anyone who has ever bet on anything. It breaks down the odds on relationships, and how they work—mostly, how they fail. As a relationship outsider, writer/performer Joe Mortimer questions their validity, and the ridiculousness of ceremony. He challenges destiny, fate, and true love, and tells why he would rather wager money on grown men who barely graduated college than risk the very real possibility of a broken heart.
This original one-man piece by comedian Joe Mortimer was created after a breakup. Originally from Philadelphia, Joe is a graduate of Temple University, and received his master’s degree from West Virginia University. After graduating from WVU, he moved to New York, where he wrote and performed comedy all over town. His original sketch “The Phone Bill” was featured on HBO’s Sketch Pad. Recently he has written several television specs and is currently working on a feature. As a day job, he offers his voice to the wonderful world of TV commercials.
This production marks the world premiere of the show.
