Little Shop Of Horros

Stage 773
1225 W Belmont Ave Chicago

Street Tempo Theatreís Little Shop of Horrors will take the audience on a journey through the streets of Skid Row to a struggling flower shop where a blood-thirsty plant from another world is anxiously awaiting her next victim. Seductive, tragic, and full of twisted humor, this darkly re-imagined production of Little Shop of Horrors is an onstage homage to b-movie cult films of the 1960's.

Chicago Reader - Recommended

"...Directors Brian Posen and Kory Danielson emphasize the grisliness over the comedy in this 1982 musical based on a Roger Corman movie about a nebbishy florist and his man-eating Venus flytrap. The skid-row setting looks legitimately dicey here, and the plant is represented by a snarling, ass-kicking Candace Edwards. Sometimes the directors try too hard to be edgy, but their approach is admirably bold and never boring."

Centerstage - Recommended

"...This joint Stage 773/Street Tempo production illuminates an under-appreciated element of this show, its sense of time and place. Itís not just the pop culture parody, although that is abundant. The sci fi tropes, the girl group consisting of three African American urchins (here changed to two African American girls and a cross dressing white male) and the ďWild OneĒ style trappings of the villain are all very funny."

Rory Leahy

Time Out Chicago - Recommended

"...Street Tempoís production marks a rare occasion when a lack of cohesion is a good thing. While Posen and Danielson are overthinking, their cast is gleefully belting, doo-wopping and dancing circles around all the directorial decadence, none more than Krystal Metcalfe, Sharriese Hamilton and Will Hoyer as some fierce Motown hookers. With some sound issues fixed, thereís a formidable Little Shop here. You just have to bushwhack first."

"...Sure, I could go on outlining what I did and didnít like in this production (particularly, the dancing ensemble, which was one element too many), but I just suggest you check it out for yourself. This is unlike any production of Little Shop youíve probably ever seen and youíre sure to walk away with some sort of strong opinion."

"...The whole is a little rough around the edges yet, but Horrors is a forgivingly tongue-in-cheek musical that absorbs them comfortably into its infectiously fun atmosphere, making it a safe and crowd-pleasing choice for a young troupe (which I think shows some wisdom on their part). With an eclectic blend of sounds and an over-the-top tall tale, this little shop is an amusing stop in Skid Row with enough bubbling energy to leave you humming for days. Just donít feed the plants."

"...LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS is as fun as life gets on Skid Row. Itís a raunchy romp with plenty of attitude and laughs. You should plant yourself in a seat for the next feeding."
