Berkshire Theatre Group announces casting for Little Shop of Horrors, with the voice of Broadway actress, Bryonha Parham (Ragtime, After Midnight) and lip-syncing Drag Queen, Taurean Everett, bringing Audrey II to life. Little Shop of Horrors runs at The Colonial Theatre from Wednesday, July 6 through Saturday, July 23.
Director Ethan Heard, says, “My collaborators and I knew we wanted to find a fresh way to manifest Audrey II, in all her fun and terrifying glory. We've decided to bring the infamous plant to life, not with a puppet, but with a fabulous, lip-syncing drag queen onstage (Taurean Everett) and a powerhouse, female, actor-singer offstage (Bryonha Parham). Designed by Miodrag Guberinic, who has crafted eye-popping window displays for Bergdoorf Goodman and stunning costumes for Madonna, our Audrey II will be more magical, thrilling, and hilarious than ever. Fashion, camp, and ferocity combine to embody Seymour's wildest dreams...and nightmares.”
