Constance Wu is set to make her New York stage debut in an off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wu will play Audrey, a main role in the Little Shop of Horrors, at the Westside Theatre starting Sept. 26. She will replace Joy Woods who is currently in the role.
Corbin Bleu, known for his work in High School Musical and Jump in!, will take replace Jeremy Jordan as Seymour.
“Little Shop has been my #1 favorite musical since I first saw a community production growing up in Richmond, Virginia. The music is so wonderful, and I love Audrey. I relate to her scrappiness and finding beauty in the simple things,” Wu said, according to Playbill. “I am so excited to be in this production, singing and performing alongside the brilliant Corbin Bleu, and enjoying the thrill of live and alive theatre with the audience.”
The off-Broadway revival posted a video announcement with Bleu and Wu to their Instagram.
