Closing out 2021
and ringing in the 2022 season
by Neil Simon
Directed by Christopher Diehl
LONDON SUITE consists of four playlets, all taking place in the same fashionable London hotel suite in the late 1990’s. In “Settling Accounts,” an inebriated Welsh writer (Brian) holds his longtime manager (Billy) at gun point for absconding with all his money. Billy concocts increasingly farfetched explanations of what he is doing in London with Brian’s money. In “Going Home,” Lauren and her Mother’s trip to London starts with shoe shopping and ends with a hilariously disastrous date with a rich Scotsman.
Two characters from CALIFORNIA SUITE return in “Diana and Sidney” where the couple, now divorced, meets many years later in London, The play ends on a hysterical note in “The Man on the Floor” with a married couple from New York, Mark and Annie, who have lost their tickets to Wimbledon. When Mark’s back goes out looking for the tickets, mayhem (and hilarity) ensues!

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
Book/Lyrics by Howard Ashman
Music by Alan Menken
Directed by Juan Luis Torres
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the florist! The frighteningly funny musical phenomenon that scared up huge audiences on both the stage and silver screen is back at CCT! Little Shop of Horrors follows a hapless florist shop worker named Seymour, who pines after his co-worker Audrey while raising a special breed of plant, which he christens Audrey II.
Seymour soon discovers that Audrey II has a taste for human blood, and as the foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore gets bigger and bigger, Audrey II brings Seymour fame, fortune and the girl of his dreams. But will it bring Seymour a happy ending? With music and lyrics by the writing team of Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors features one great tune after another (“Suddenly, Seymour”, “Somewhere That’s Green”) and has been devouring the hearts of theatergoers for over thirty years.
