Not Broadway quality, but great for small community theatre. It started off a little slow as the cast seemed to lack energy or chemistry or something, but after the first couple scenes they seemed reinvigorated and charged their way through the rest of the show. Excellent cast all had exceptional vocal talents. Best performances were by Richard De Vicariis as Mr Mushnik and Adam Mantell as the Dentist/NBC Exec/Life Editor. Both were very expressive and played well to the audience. Very good choreography - as complex as it needed to be without being over the top or too elaborate. Sets, costumes and lighting were good, but there seemed to be a constant haze onstage that was distracting. Music was good, except I swear they turned the volume up for the second act, which drowned out the actors’ voices. Other than that small glitch, we had a great time!
One of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time, “Little Shop of Horrors” is based on a black-comedy film version in the 1960s and a doo-wop rock and roll score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Merken. A down-and-out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! A great musical score (“Suddenly Seymour,” “Skid Row (Downtown),” “Somewhere That’s Green) and excellent story telling make this a “must see” for theater fans
