Fans of ACT of Connecticut will be thrilled to see Artistic Director Daniel C. Levine reprise the role he played on Broadway: the sadistic and leather-clad dentist, Orin Scrivello. Of the role, Levine said, “It was such a thrill playing Orin (The Dentist) nearly 15 years ago and I can't wait to revisit this insane and iconic character! If ever I were to perform in an ACT show, this is the one! I'm excited for our audiences to see what we have in store for them!”
With book and lyrics by Academy Award Winner Howard Ashman and music by TONY and Academy Award Winner (and one of ACT’s Artistic Advisors) Alan Menken, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS has amassed numerous awards since its musical debut over thirty years ago, including the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, and Outer Critics Circle Award. Based on the 1960 film, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS follows amateur botanist Seymour, his love interest Audrey and her sadistic dentist boyfriend Orin, all while Audrey II (the man-eating plant) threatens to destroy the world.

The show times are: Thursdays at 7pm, Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 2pm. Purchase tickets HERE.
