Mj Rodriguez and George Salazar performed “Suddenly Seymour” from Little Shop of Horrors on The Late Late Show with James Corden. This production of Little Shop is playing at the Pasadena Playhouse through October 20th.

OP saw this production in September and didn’t love it, but this song was easily the highlight of the show, and a great choice to showcase on TV.

I’ve never loved a plant more. Got to see @MsAmberPRiley and co in Little Shop of Horrors at the @PasPlayhouse last night. I hate her. Why is she so good? All the time? https://t.co/bM8Tmi23SD pic.twitter.com/ERj6B8VPO7

Jake Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge said goodbye before their last performance of Sea Wall/A Life, which played its last performance on September 29th. The show, composed of two monologues, ran Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in the winter, and then transferred to Broadway at the Hudson over the summer.

Top performers at the box office for last week are all familiar names. Moulin Rouge!, Hamilton, and To Kill a Mockingbird are all putting up stellar numbers, with the soon-to-close Beautiful getting a boost as well.

Linda Vista, The Lightning Thief and The Rose Tattoo are all struggling to find audiences.
