Little Shop of Horrors
By Alan Menken and Howard Ashman
Directed by Heidi Coleman and Jack Tamburri
Francis X. Kinahan Third Floor Theater
University Theater presents a queer interpretation of the classic horror musical like you've never seen it before! This puppet-less production, co-directed by UT Director Heidi Coleman and third- year Jack Tamburri, features costumes by award-winner Asta Hostetter. Laughs, sex and buckets of blood await you, so come to Hyde Park for an evening you won't soon forget!
What in the world is that supposed to mean? Queer as in odd or queer as in everyone will be dressed in rainbow colors, jack-booted bull dykes will be ushers and instead of seymour and audrey it's seymour and andy? I would have gone in an instant before, but I'm not looking forward to being preached at when all I wanted was to enjoy a musical I love. It's like that margaret cho fiasco when all I wanted was some comedy and somehow found myself in the middle of a political rally for moveon.org. Feh.
