"Little Shop of Horrors" — Sept. 29 to Oct. 16, 2016

"Little Shop of Horrors"
A musical comedy
Book and lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Based on the film by Roger Corman, screenplay by Charles Griffith

 

Directed by Bob Russell
Musical Direction by John Ebner

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" — after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD! Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out-of-this-world origins and intent towards global domination!

A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty a nd the Beast and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.

Little Shop of Horrors premiered on May 6, 1982 at the Workshop of the Players' Art Theatre. It then opened off-Broadway at the Orpheum Theatre in New York City's East Village on July 27 of the same year. The production was directed by book writer and lyricist Howard Ashman and starred Canton, Ohio native Lee Wilkof as Seymour, Ellen Greene as Audrey and Ron Taylor as Mr. Mushnik. It closed on Nov. 1, 1987 with 2,209 performances under its belt. When propositioned for a Broadway transfer, Ashman elected not to, claiming the show was perfect for where it was. The musical also had its West End premiere at the Comedy Theatre, produced by Cameron Mackintosh. It ran for 813 performances from Jan. 1, 1983 to Oct. 5, 1985 and starred Barry James and Ellen Greene (reprising her role from New York).

Little Shop of Horrors is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.

"Red" -- Oct. 27 to Nov. 12, 2016"Red"
A drama by John Logan

Directed by Melanie Y.C. Pepe

Master abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art: a series of murals for New York's famed Four Seasons restaurant. In the fascinating two years that follow, Rothko works feversishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, Red is a searing portrait of an artist's ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.

Red was first produced by the Donmar Warehouse in London in December 2009. The original production was directed by Michael Grandage and performed by Alfred Molina as Rothko and Eddie Redmayne as his fictional assistant Ken. The production, with its two leads, transferred to Broadway at the John Golden Theater for a limited engagement which began on March 11, 2010 and closed on June 27. It was the 2010 Tony Award winner for Best Play. Additionally, Redmayne won a 2010 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play.

Audience Advisory: Due to adult language and themes, this play is not suitable for children.

Red is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service. The videotaping or other video or audio recording of this production is strictly prohibited.
