Maude Apatow (Euphoria, Hollywood) makes her New York stage debut in the hit revival of the Alan Menken-Howard Ashman musical Little Shop of Horrors beginning February 7 at Off-Broadway's Westside Theatre.
Apatow succeeds Tony winner Lena Hall as Audrey; she is scheduled to continue with the production through April 2.
"I have long admired the emotional intelligence and vulnerability Maude has displayed on television and in film. She’s a natural fit for Audrey,” director Michael Mayer said in an earlier statement. “It delighted me to learn that, as a child, Little Shop was her gateway into her lifelong love of performing, and that this show gets to be her professional stage debut. We’re thrilled to have her become a part of the Little Shop legacy.”
Little Shop of Horrors currently stars Company Tony winner Matt Doyle as Seymour, Bryce Pinkham as Dr. Orin Scrivello D.D.S., Brad Oscar as Mushnik, Aaron Arnell Harrington as The Voice of Audrey II, Tiffany Renee Thompson as Crystal, Khadija Sankoh as Chiffon, D’Kaylah Unique Whitley, Josh Daniel, Camryn Hampton, Michael Iannucci, Weston Chandler Long, Chelsea Turbin, and Teddy Yudain.
The Off-Broadway revival resumed its run September 21, 2021, after temporarily closing in March 2020 due to the pandemic.
Directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer, the revival opened in October 2019. The creative team for the Ashman-Menken musical also includes choreographer Ellenore Scott, scenic designer Julian Crouch, lighting designer Bradley King, costume designer Tom Broecker, sound designer Jessica Paz, puppet designer Nicholas Mahon, original puppet designer Martin P. Robinson, hair and makeup designer Tommy Kurzman, music supervisor, orchestrator, and arranger Will Van Dyke, and casting director Jim Carnahan. Puppets are by Monkey Boys Productions.
