Mercury Theater’s “Little Shop of Horrors” – Review by Carol Moore

**** Recommended **** It seems like there’s a production of “Little Shop of Horrors” every year. This year, ‘Audrey II” is wowing audiences at Mercury Theater. Seymour is still nerdy, Audrey is still vulnerable, and “Little Shop” is still charming. Although the opening night audience was a bit over-enthusiastic, “Little Shop of Horrors” is still one of my favorites, so I give it 4 Spotlights.

“Little Shop of Horrors” runs through April 28th at the Mercury Theater, 3745 N. Southport Avenue, Chicago. Valet parking is available, $15.

Running time is 2 hours with an intermission. Performances are Wednesday through Friday at 8:00 pm, Saturday at 5:00 and 8:30 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm. Tickets range from $35-$65. FYI (773) 325-1700 or
