Enchanting, Classic, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Lovely Little Shop. Was delighted to have the chance to see this. Great songs and great theatrical energy, not overblown or tired at all.

Don't see it if I think you should! Maybe if you prefer more natural, less fantasy-esq and comic- horror stories.

"CRITIC’S PICK "Jonathan Groff Feeds the Beast: Michael Mayer’s revitalizing revival of this genially gruesome classic becomes a sly morality tale for the age of universal celebrity."

Time Out New York
October 17th, 2019

4/5 Stars "Mayer has wrangled a marvelous cast…Groff's Seymour is a likable klutz with just a hint of deadpan creepiness…Christian Borle solidifies his status as the preeminent musical-theater clown of his generation...And Blanchard is a revelation...She's the heart of the production."

"The show’s most charming quality is its feeling of having been put on for the hell of it. I’m sure it’s going to make money. It’s a dream cast of consummate pros. But — and my eyes look like hearts while I type this — the infectious energy is pure amateur."

New York Daily News
October 17th, 2019

"You get the sense here that the scale of the production comes with utter intentionality — an honoring of great material more than a quest for profit. And, therefore, that feeling of determined mission permeates everything that’s happening. You’ll get all the feels you need."

Variety
October 17th, 2019

"Directed at a quick clip by Michael Mayer, this 'Little Shop' is played out on the small, tight stage of the Westside Theater with an ever-growing, masterfully manipulated plant. The close confines give this 'Little Shop' the intimacy of home viewing."
