Tony winner Matt Doyle to play Seymour in 'Little Shop of Horrors' off Broadway
He will take over the role from Rob McClure.
Suddenly, Matt! Tony Award winner Matt Doyle will be the next Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors at the Westside Theatre. Beginning November 15, he will star in the Off-Broadway production, replacing Tony nominee Rob McClure.
Doyle won the 2022 Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, along with Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards, for his role as Jamie in Company. His other Broadway credits include Spring Awakening, Bye Bye Birdie, and The Book of Mormon, and he also performed in the latest Off-Broadway revival of Sweeney Todd in 2017.
Doyle joins Tony winner Lena Hall as Audrey, Tony nominee Brad Oscar as Mushnik, and Andrew Call as Orin Scrivello, D.D.S. Call replaces current cast member Bryce Pinkham on November 7.
Little Shop of Horrors follows Seymour, an awkward flower shop worker who comes upon a talking, flesh-eating plant. The plant promises him love and fortune — if Seymour promises to deliver it fresh blood.
The Michael Mayer-directed revival of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman's classic horror comedy has been running to acclaim since 2019, with Broadway stars like Jonathan Groff, Jeremy Jordan, and Conrad Ricamora starring as Seymour in the past.
