Broadway favorite Jeremy Jordan, who reopened the hit Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors in September 2021 following the pandemic shutdown, returns to Skid Row as Seymour beginning July 25 at the Westside Theatre.
Jordan had originally been slated to join the production March 17, 2020, when the musical was temporarily closed due to the pandemic. The stage and screen star, who succeeds Company Tony winner Matt Doyle (who played his final performance as Seymour July 16), is currently scheduled to stay with the Alan Menken and Howard Ashman musical through September 17.
Jordan did double duty on Broadway in the 2018–2019 season, appearing in American Son and Waitress; he subsequently reprised his role in the former in a film adaptation for Netflix. He had managed a similar feat in the 2011–2012 season, appearing in Bonnie & Clyde and Newsies (earning a Tony nomination in the latter). His screen credits include the CW's Supergirl, NBC's Smash, and the film adaptation of The Last Five Years.
The cast currently features Joy Woods (Six: The Musical, The Notebook) as Audrey, Brad Oscar (Something Rotten!, The Producers) as Mushnik, Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, The Heidi Chronicles) as Dr. Orin Scrivello D.D.S., Aaron Arnell Harrington as The Voice of Audrey II, D’Kaylah Unique Whitley as Ronnette, Tiffany Renee Thompson as Crystal, and Khadija Sankoh as Chiffon with Camryn Hampton, Najah Hetsberger, Weston Chandler Long, Teddy Yudain, Zakiya Baptiste, Johnny Newcomb, Jonothon Lyons, Noel MacNeal, Michael Iannucci, Kevin Pariseau, Jeff Sears, Evan Alexander Smith, and Melissa Victor.
The Off-Broadway revival resumed its run September 21, 2021, after temporarily closing in March 2020 due to the pandemic.
Directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer, the revival opened in October 2019. The creative team for the Howard Ashman-Alan Menken musical also includes choreographer Ellenore Scott, scenic designer Julian Crouch, lighting designer Bradley King, costume designer Tom Broecker, sound designer Jessica Paz, puppet designer Nicholas Mahon, original puppet designer Martin P. Robinson, hair and makeup designer Tommy Kurzman, music supervisor, orchestrator, and arranger Will Van Dyke, and casting director Jim Carnahan. Puppets are by Monkey Boys Productions.
