The Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors has announced that Golden Globe nominee Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians, Hustlers) and stage and screen star Corbin Bleu (High School Musical franchise, Kiss Me, Kate) will step into the roles of Audrey and Seymour, respectively, beginning September 26 at the Westside Theatre.
“Little Shop has been my #1 favorite musical since I first saw a community production growing up in Richmond, Virginia. The music is so wonderful, and I love Audrey. I relate to her scrappiness and finding beauty in the simple things,” says Wu. “I am so excited to be in this production, singing and performing alongside the brilliant Corbin Bleu, and enjoying the thrill of live and alive theatre with the audience.”
“I’ve been a fan of Little Shop since childhood—I watched the film on repeat. It’s a perfect musical and this is definitely a dream-fulfilling moment for me,” said Corbin Bleu. “I am really looking forward to performing with Constance and finding our Seymour and Audrey dynamic. We both love and crave live theatre—our mutual excitement is kinetic.”
The cast currently features Jeremy Jordan as Seymour, Joy Woods as Audrey, Bryce Pinkham as Dr. Orin Scrivello D.D.S., Brad Oscar as Mushnik, Aaron Arnell Harrington as The Voice of Audrey II, D’Kaylah Unique Whitley as Ronnette, Tiffany Renee Thompson as Crystal, and Khadija Sankoh as Chiffon with Camryn Hampton, Najah Hetsberger, Weston Chandler Long, Teddy Yudain, Zakiya Baptiste, Johnny Newcomb, Jonothon Lyons, Noel MacNeal, Michael Iannucci, Kevin Pariseau, Jeff Sears, Evan Alexander Smith, and Melissa Victor.
