I Just Saw Little Shop of Horrors For the First Time

Sunday, July 3, 2022

Yes, this is true. It took me 26 years, but I finally saw Little Shop of Horrors. And it was so much fun! The only things I knew about the show before I saw it was Audrey II ate people, and the song "Suddenly Seymour", but with no context for its place in the show. That was how little this show had permeated my brain.

But I'm so glad I got to go into it pretty much clean. It's not like it was a show I listened to the cast album a bunch, so I didn't have a version of what it was supposed to look like in my head, so I could just sit back, be surprised and laugh. And laugh I did.

It was such a great time in the theater. I got to see Christian Borle perform for the third time, and the Seymour I got to see was Skylar Astin in his last performance, so that was pretty cool. And now I'm gonna listen to the cast album from this production, which means I now get to experience Jonathan Groff's Seymour. So, two Spring Awakening alum's for me. Skylar Astin was the third original cast member to play Seymour after Groff and Gideon Glick, so I wonder if there's gonna be anybody else to do it. I shall wait and (potentially) see.
