From Mindhunter to, uh, plant feeder, the very handsome Jonathan Groff will be playing the nebbishy Seymour in a new Off Broadway revival of the classic Howard Ashman and Alan Menken musical Little Shop of Horrors. Tammy Blanchard will play Audrey (the role originated by Ellen Greene), while Tony winner Christian Borle will play Orin the sadistic dentist. Michael Mayer (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Burn This) is directing the revival, which originally premiered Off Broadway in 1982. Little Shop has since had a 2003 Broadway production and a 2015 Encores! production with Greene and Jake Gyllenhaal, but this will be its first Off Broadway revival. The production will run at the Westside Theatre, with performances starting September 17 this year and opening night set for October 17.
