Matt Doyle Will Join LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS Off-Broadway
Mushnik’s Flower Shop is adding another Tony winner to its roster. Matt Doyle will succeed Rob McClure as Seymour Krelborn November 15 in the hit Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors.
Doyle was last seen as Jamie in the 2021 Tony-winning, gender-bent revival of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Company. The star won Best Featured Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical for his performance. His other Broadway credits include War Horse, The Book of Mormon, and Spring Awakening.
The musical is currently playing at the Westside Theatre and has become a star vehicle, especially for the role of Seymour, with Jonathan Groff, Gideon Glick, Conrad Ricamora, Jeremy Jordan, and Skylar Astin all playing the lovable horticulturist.
Little Shop of Horrors currently stars two-time Tony nominee McClure (Mrs. Doubtfire) as Seymour, Tony winner Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as Audrey, Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) as Orin Scrivello, D.D.S., and Tony nominee Brad Oscar (Something Rotten!) as Mushnik.
Completing the current cast are Aaron Arnell Harrington as The Voice of Audrey II, Ari Groover as Ronnette, Tiffany Renee Thompson as Crystal, Khadija Sankoh as Chiffon, Josh Daniel, Camryn Hampton, Michael Iannucci, Weston Chandler Long, Chelsea Turbin, and Teddy Yudain.
The musical, featuring a book and lyrics by Howard Ashman, and music by Alan Menken, is directed by Michael Mayer. It follows Seymour, a down-on-his-luck florist with a crush on his co-worker (who is dating a sadistic dentist). When he befriends a mysterious—and blood-thirsty—plant, an epic battle unfolds that will determine the fate of the entire human race.
The production features choreography by Ellenore Scott, scenic design by Julian Crouch, lighting design by Bradley King, costume design by Tom Broecker, sound design by Jessica Paz, puppet designer by Nicholas Mahon, (based on original puppet design by Martin P. Robinson); puppets by Monkey Boys Productions, hair and makeup design by Tommy Kurzman, and music supervision by Will Van Dyke. Casting is by Jim Carnahan.
