Whether you love the movie or have never even heard of Rick Moranis, the Olions’ production of “Little Shop of Horrors” will have you laughing the antics, caring about the characters and applauding wildly, standing in front of your Duane W. Smith seat.
I enjoyed so many elements of the musical I almost don’t know where to begin. But, since it is “Little Shop of Horrors,” I’ll start with the plant.
The plant is awesome.
The Olions, under the direction of Nina Saunders, did an excellent job not only in making an inanimate prop grow bigger several times during the show but in bringing out its true nature – which isn’t inanimate at all. In its infancy, the plant – named Audrey Two – wriggles alarmingly. But at full maturity, the plant wails, it manipulates, it murders and, beautifully, it sings.
Amanda Jalbert, playing Audrey Two, has a strong, resonant, bluesy voice you just don’t expect from a high school student, let alone one confined inside a huge, man-eating plant.
