"Little Shop of Horrors" returns to its off-Broadway roots in a new production starring Emmy winner Tammy Blanchard, Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan, and two-time Tony winner Christian Borle. More…
From the show:
Don’t miss the “triumphant and delicious revival” (The New York Times) of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS! Experience the hit musical as it was meant to be seen, in an intimate 270-seat setting. This “wildly exuberant and irresistible” (The Hollywood Reporter) production stars Emmy® Award winner Tammy Blanchard ("Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows"), Tony Award® nominee Gideon Glick (To Kill a Mockingbird), and two-time Tony winner Christian Borle (Something Rotten!). Together they bring succulent new life to “the best musical ever adapted from a movie” (Time Out, Critics’ Pick).
Featuring a book and lyrics by Oscar® and Grammy Award® winner Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid), music by Oscar and Tony winner Alan Menken (Aladdin), and direction by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening), “this LITTLE SHOP is to die for!” (NY1).
See it if you're like the show/movie. Great sets, amazing puppet.
Don't see it if Talent was uneven. Some gave great acting some gave great singing. No one did both. Regardless it was great fun with beloved story & tunes.
See it if You're a fan of Little Shop or have never seen it before. Very polished production. Great puppet. Incredible songs. Very fun.
Don't see it if Vocals from some of the cast were a little disappointing but not a reason to not see it.
See it if u want to see a jaunty, sentimental, nostalgic, expertly staged, faithful revival of the feel-good horror cult classic (now a pop staple).
Don't see it if you expect a reimagining, updating or contemporizing of the material [This is strictly a by-the-numbers homage, albeit a skillful one.]
See it if entertainingly absurdist tale of murderous plant; hear Menken's fine music, Ashman's witty lyrics; Chris Borle masterful in various roles
Don't see it if fatuous plot; 2 much Borsht Belt humor; uneasy marriage of silliness & darkness; some music dated; anti-racism message too obscure/see below
See it if you enjoy dark comedy and quirky, off-beat stories. The score is fun and you can’t beat Groff and Borle in an intimate setting.
Don't see it if you’re turned off by human sacrifice. Lol
See it if You love the show or have never seen it. It’s a terrific, traditional staging of a great show with a great cast (Borle especially).
Don't see it if You dislike the show or these actors, or are expecting a new staging.
See it if great acting (Borle rocks all his characters/Grof is adorable), music, dance & song. Audrey 2 & puppeteers are terrific, intimate setting.
Don't see it if you want an Ellen Greene impersonator. Blanchard is vulnerable/lovable but doesn't have Greene's singing chops. Accept that & all is good.
See it if you want to see a near-perfect production of a classic camp musical performed, as it should be, in a small theater
Don't see it if don't like shows with puppets, if you are looking for something serious, or if you object to paying Broadway prices off-Broadway.
See it if you love funny, creative, bright comedy.Christian Borle is BRILLIANT.The rest of the cast is delightful, but he is brlliant
Don't see it if you want a straightforward comedy or a big brassy musical.This is clever, quintessential downtown theatre. I love it.
See it if you enjoy a true Broadway musical, it harkens back to successful traditional shows. Groff and Borle shine
Don't see it if references to sadism and flesh eating plants make you ill.
See it if you want to have a fun evening in the theater. Groff could not be better & Borle is very funny in multiple parts. Fine production!
Don't see it if Groff, Borle & the Urchins had terrific voices. Blanchard less so.Sometimes had difficulty hearing all her lyrics, tho still sympathetic.
See it if fun revival of horror cult classic with great set & amazing puppetry; Borle great in various roles especially as creepy dentist; Groff*
Don't see it if don't like dark comedies about man-eating plants; want all the fun lyrics to be understood - a couple of times the chorus was not
See it if you want to see Jonathan Groff be completely wonderful as Seymour. So much fun I would see it again. Christian Borle was a hoot. Thumbs up
Don't see it if You expect Tammy Blanchard to hold up to Ellen Greene perf. Sadly, she doesn't have the vocal chops for the role, and odd char. choices.
See it if I saw it first time In the Village. See this production. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT. FABULOUS
Don't see it if You want to see a big Broadway Production. Personally I’d say DON’T MISS THIS ONE
See it if Great revival of classical musical.Plays well in small,intimate theater.Outstanding props and mastery of puppetry. Cast excels.Borle shines.
Don't see it if You think you've seen it too many times. Each production,particularly with different casts, makes it worthwhile to revisit.
See it if you are a fan of the story. This was a fantastic version. I loved everything about it. Especially enjoyed Tammy Blanchard as Audrey.
Don't see it if you aren't a fan of the show. It doesn't reinvent anything--it just presents the old material in a practically perfect way.

Don't see it if you do not like campy musicals. It is not meant to be taken seriously.
See it if You want to experience pure joy in musical theater form. Groff and Borle are perfect and the Ronnettes are beyond entertaining.
Don't see it if Other than cost (which is high, but worth it if you can afford it) I cannot think of any reason to miss this production.
See it if Dream cast of Groff Borle & Blanchard makes for an unforgettable experience
Don't see it if Blanchard seems to be channeling Zellweiger doing Garland but in the end it works as a character arc
See it if this is a show you like. Some people don't. I think this is a strong production of a fun show. Groff is great, Borle and Blanchard, too.
Don't see it if you don't like quirky rather dark musicals. But this one is fun! My only complaint is that I couldn't understand lyrics when the chorus sang
