Little Shop of Horrors

1835 14th Street, NW Washington

Deep in the run-down neighborhood of Skid Row, timid floral assistant Seymour Krelborn is skyrocketed to fame when he discovers a strange and unusual plant that he names "Audrey II" after his sweet but self-sacrificing coworker. Soon, Seymour has it all - cash, glory, and the girl of his dreams - but his good fortune takes a deadly turn when the rapidly growing Audrey II develops an appetite for human blood. With a charming doo-wop and Motown-flavored score by Grammy and Academy Award-winning songwriting duo Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, this show will satisfy your craving for tongue-in-cheek humor, toe-tapping songs and murderous hijinks.

MetroWeekly - Highly Recommended

"...The glorious sight of a giant, alien flytrap chomping down on unsuspecting human victims is just one of many joys to be had in Constellation Theatre Company's Little Shop of Horrors. The greedy, green potted menace known as Audrey II also sings, shouts, and seduces with the plush, soulful baritone of Marty Austin Lamar, while flapping its copious gums and snaky tendrils courtesy of puppeteer Rj Pavel's spot-on manipulation."

"...Director Nick Martin works in tandem with Guban to take full advantage the set. His cast constantly in motion, resulting in a spectacle with real momentum. Constellation Theatre's LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS practically flies by."

"...Director Nick Martin and choreographer Ilona Kessell keep the pace quick, the characterizations consistent, and the movement seamless. The urchins get good ’60s girl group movement, and there’s a funny tango moment for Seymour and Mushnik in “Mushnik and Son.” Traditionally, at show’s end, flowers bloom on Audrey II displaying images of its victims. Martin creates a nice update by instead having the victims appear in leafy zombie mode, joining the rest of the company for the concluding “Don’t Feed the Plants.”"

"...But the absolute showpiece performance in this Little Shop comes from Teresa Quigley Danskey, who plays Audrey, the sweet and abused customer service specialist at the florist shop. Her pitch perfect emoting takes the wheel of the production, making the show less about Seymour's ambitious botany and more about her survival in an abusive relationship, her pathos-inducing low standards, and her tragic end."
