Citadel Theatre has once again brought musical theater magic to life with their current production of Little Shop of Horrors. This iconic show, known for its unique blend of comedy, horror, and catchy tunes, has been expertly brought to the stage in a way that captivates and entertains audiences from start to finish.
The cast of Little Shop of Horrors truly shines, and their performances are the heart and soul of this production. Seymour, played by Tenaj Williams, is endearing and relatable, making the audience genuinely care about his character’s journey. Audrey, portrayed by Synthia Yusuf, is a standout with her powerful vocals and emotional depth, delivering a remarkable rendition of “Somewhere That’s Green.” The dynamic between these two characters is heartfelt and a joy to watch.
The real star of the show, of course, is Audrey II, the man-eating plant. The puppetry and voice acting for Audrey II are a marvel. The plant is brought to life in a way that is both terrifying and oddly charismatic, including visually striking choreography during Audrey II’s musical numbers.
With its exceptional set design, outstanding performances, and memorable music, it’s a must-see for both fans of the original and those new to the story. This show provides a bloomin’ good time that is sure to leave you singing, laughing, and, just maybe, a little afraid of your houseplants. Don’t miss your chance to witness this theatrical masterpiece; it’s a “feed me, Seymour” you won’t want to resist!
