Peter Paige joins Little Shop of Horrors cast at Musical Theatre West

Little Shop MTW

Peter Paige (from Showtime’s Queer as Folk) has been added to MTW’s cast of Little Shop of Horrors playing Dr. Orin Scrivello D.D.S. He joins previously announced cast members Danny Gurwin as Seymour (Broadway's Little Women, The Full Monty, The Scarlet Pimpernel), Lowe Taylor as Audrey (The Marvelous Wonderettes, Divorce, The Musical), Stuart Pankin as Mr. Mushnik (HBO’s Not Necessarily The News, MTW’s Silk Stockings), Michael Shepperd as the Voice of Audrey II (Artistic Director of the Celebration Theatre, Little Shop on Broadway), Kamilah Marshall, Meloney Collins and Fredericka Meek.

Steve Glaudini, Musical Theatre West’s Associate Artistic Director will direct the production, which will also feature costumes and sets direct from the recent Broadway revival. Show previews on July 10, opens July 11, and runs through July 26 at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center in Long Beach.

One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies follows a down and out skid row floral assistant who becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Little Shop of Horrors never fails to entertain.
