Site Closed: May 24

The Ford's Theatre National Historic Site will be closed on Friday, May 24, 2019, for maintenance. This includes the museum, theatre, Petersen House and the Aftermath Exhibits in the Center for Education and Leadership.

One of the most popular musicals of all time, Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of the well-meaning flower shop employee Seymour Krelborn and his wisecracking carnivorous plant, Audrey II. Seymour delights in the attention his leafy friend attracts, but when Audrey II develops a craving for human flesh, the situation spins out of control. Coy Middlebrook, a key member of the artistic team for Shenandoah and Big River, makes his Ford’s directorial debut with this zany American classic. Husband-and-wife team Christopher Kale Jones and Jenna Coker-Jones make their Ford’s Theatre debut as Seymour and Audrey. 

“Five stars! Director Coy Middlebrook has created something bright and fun and utterly entertaining.”
