In the world of musical theatre, there are some shows that feel fresh and new, no matter how many times you see them. These are the musicals you drop everything to experience even if it may be your fortieth time. For musicals like that, the thrill of seeing what a different theatre, director, designer, or actor may do with a favorite piece can often be just as thrilling as sitting in an audience for opening night of a world premiere musical. For me, this is the case with Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS – a cautionary tale of what lengths some may take for love, fame and success all wrapped up in a colorful, fun, and nearly perfect book with catchy songs and memorable characters. A frequent choice when asked what my favorite musical may be (and I have seen/heard/performed in many), LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is the perfect mix of comedy, horror, camp and love story all rolled into one. So, imagine my thrill sitting outside (without a mask based on the new CDC rules!) at the Walt Disney Amphitheatre in Lake Eola Park on opening night of Orlando Shakes latest production as the chords of the opening number began. Excitement, anticipation, and curiosity - and I am here to tell you 100 minutes later (without intermission) my expectations were not only met, but exceeded.

“L’ INVALIDE” Viewable ON LINE @:  https://luminarioballet.org/movie We see some very tall, spindly trees above that we are surrounded by, as a cover of “White Rabbit,” circa late ‘60s by Jefferson Airplane and Grace Slick is heard.  Next a voiceover begins to tell the story of Alice in Wonderland, and some wild and cut to a different scene altogether.  From this moment on, I knew this was going to be a trippy, artistic and somewhat psychedelic journey into someone’s subconsciousness. That someone is Judith FLEX Helle, the director and choreographer of this unique piece of film.  It blends together altered states, symbolism, beautiful movement, and much emotion.  It’s loosely autobiographical, in that it portrays how she imagines she felt at a certain time in her life. Produced by Judith FLEX Helle, Allen Walls and Luminario Ballet, this 12-minute content-packed film will leave you gasping at what just transpired.

The quality of the sound recording is so acute that you know exactly where she is at every moment. Stevenson’s performance is a marvel as she careens from the soothing, caring, den-mother to a shrieking, blood-soaked avenging angel, unafraid of what she has to do to survive.
