MJ Rodriguez and Amber Riley have joined Pasadena Playhouse’s reimagining of iconic sci-fi musical Little Shop of Horrors.
The duo joins alongside George Salazar, who is set to play Seymour, with Rodriguez tackling the role of Audrey and Riley voicing Audrey II, a role originally voiced by a male performer.
The venue’s artistic director Danny Feldman told The Hollywood Reporter, “Our new electrifying production of Little Shop of Horrors will give our audiences the opportunity to see a show they know and love in a way they never have before. From a delicious new take on everyone’s favorite singing plant to the stunningly talented cast, this is sure to be a landmark theatrical event for Los Angeles.”
The classic musical tells the story of a meek flower shop assistant who raises a plant that feeds on humans.
The latest re-imagining is said to feature “some deliciously devious new twists: a brand-new puppet concept for Audrey II, and a whole new take on Skid Row.”
The show opens September 17, you can find more information and tickets at www.pasadenaplayhouse.org.
