Little Shop of Horrors to close early 8 Sep 2007

Little shop of Horrors has posted early closing notices at the Ambassadors Theatre. The show, which was originally booking to 3 Nov, will now close two months early on 8 Sep 2007.

This production started life at the Menier Chocolate Factory (17 Nov 2006 - 25 Feb 2007) before transferring to the Duke of York's Theatre (6 Mar 2007 to 23 June 2007), before transferring to the Ambassadors on 29 June 2007.

The musical received mostly good notices from the popular press: MADDY COSTA for THE GUARDIAN says, "A charming production." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "I can't see how anyone could fail to have a good time at Matthew White's exuberant show." NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Now, in the West End, Matthew White's production strikes many witless, dull and gross notes."

The show has book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken.

Directed by Matthew White, the cast includes : Sheridan Smith (Audrey), Paul Keating (Seymour), Barry James (Mushnik),

It has designs and costumes by David Farley, choreography by Lynne Page, lighting by Paul Anderson, musical supervision by Caroline Humphris and sound design by Gareth Owen.

Down and out Skid Row floral assistant Seymour becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon 'Audrey II' grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore offering him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite… but as Audrey II’s hungry demands increase, all that Seymour holds dear is threatened as the plant’s sinister agenda for global domination is revealed….

It is produced in the West End by David Babani for Chocolate Factory Productions, Bob Boyett, the Frankel/Baruch/Viertel/Routh Group and Stephanie McClelland.
