Forman School's winter theatrical production of Little Shop of Horrors took place on February 21 and 22 in the Jake Cloobeck '16 Theater. The musical comedy about a human-eating plant featured many wonderful performances. The lead players were outstanding and audiences loved Levon DeGennaro '19 as Seymour, Molly Reinhardt '20 as Audrey, and Henry Lautch '19 as Mr. Mushnick.
The play takes place on Skid Row in and around Mr. Mushnick's flower shop with a rotating set that took the action seamlessly from inside to outside the shop. Forman School productions are known for their wonderful set design and costumes and Little Shop of Horrors took its place among the best shows in recent memory.
Each production of a show at Forman has its own story and takes on a life of its own. This production was flowing along nicely until the flu hit. The day of the premiere saw a stage manager, a technical assistant, and a lead actor take ill and become unable to participate in the show, after putting in almost two months of work. "I have never seen a group of people come together as one so beautifully in the face of such obstacles," said Tammy Grella, director of the show. "I'll remember this cast and crew very fondly. Everyone stepped up but I must commend Reid Korde '21 who volunteered to take on a major role with merely a day of prep while also maintaining his existing role in the play."
