Photo Coverage: Paper Mill's 'Little Shop of Horrors' Opening Night

On June 8th, 2008 Paper Mill Playhouse opened its mainstage production of Little Shop of Horrors, a musical written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. The musical is based on Roger Corman's 1960 sci-fi comedy and includes several show-stopping numbers including "Skid Row (Downtown)," "Somewhere That's Green," and "Suddenly Seymour," as well as the title song.  Little Shop of Horrors will run at the Millburn theatre from June 4 through July 6, 2008.

 When it debuted off-Broadway, The New York Times declared Little Shop of Horrors "a fiendish musical creature feature...as entertaining as it is exotic." Now, after becoming the third longest-running--and highest grossing--production in off-Broadway history, earning a myriad of awards, and inspiring a wildly popular film adaptation, this hilarious musical makes its Paper Mill Playhouse premiere.

Little Shop of Horrors brings an all-star cast to the Paper Mill Stage including: Stephen Berger (Mushnik), Darin DePaul, Badia Farha (Crystal), Jenny Fellner (Audrey), Jared Gertner (Seymour), Montego Glover (Chiffon), Angela Grovey (Ronnette), Stacey Harris, Michael Latini, Michael James Leslie (Voice of Audrey II), Asa Somers (Orin) and Tally Sessions. Little Shop of Horrors is directed by Mark Waldrop, who directed the hit Bea Arthur On Broadway. 

The after party was held at Martini Bistro & Bar in Milburn, NJ. For more information please visit www.papermill.org
