One of New York’s favorite cult musicals is back Off-Broadway and better than ever with an all-star cast, great set design and lighting that makes for one of the most entertaining stage experiences you can have.
Seymour Krelborn (Jeremy Jordan) discovers a plant that helps revive business for Mushnik’s Skid Row Florists where he works with his father figure Mr. Mushnik (Tom Alan Robbins) and unrequited love Audrey (Tammy Blanchard). With the plant only eating blood and growing large enough to the point that it can speak and move, Seymour is soon in over his head.
The highlight of the show must be Christian Borle. The veteran stage actor plays the sadistic dentist Orin Scrivello as well as several supporting characters. Each one he makes distinctly their own and is absolutely hilarious.
Final say: Take a trip to skid row. ★★★★★
