BroadwayWorld.com sat down with Marc Antolin to discuss his upcoming role as Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors.
On auditioning for the role – ‘Seymour’s my dream part…We were in LA and I did contemplate going to Skid Row and doing a music video but I thought, ‘I don’t want to come across too desperate!’
On performing outdoors – ‘I think it’s the closest you’ll get to everything being really live. You’re dealing with all the elements, from the weather to pigeons. If a pigeon flies across, everyone’s aware that it’s there. So for me, it’s best to use it because it’s pointless trying to ignore the fact that it’s there sitting on your set! It’s really exciting…I think it really changes (and often enhances) the experience.’
On what to expect from the show – ‘For those who do know the show very well, they’ll have something different to take away. And for people who don’t know the show, they’ll have a completely new experience on the night…You’ll definitely leave on a massive high with a bit of a party vibe. It’ll be a perfect night out this summer!’
