‘Little Shop,’ is a hoot; Petaluma Adobe repairs; eyeing local painter

<em><strong>Horrendous horrors</strong></em>

Last week, while watching the Sebastiani Theatre’s terrific 80th anniversary celebration, I saw my friend Tina Luster.

She mentioned that she and her sweetie, Bill Hoban, had gone to see the local production of “Little Shop of Horrors.” Tina’s clear and enthusiastic advice: “Don’t miss it.” I trust Tina who doesn’t often gush about a local show. So, last Thursday, my own sweetie, another Bill, and I went to Narrow Way Stage Company’s latest offering at the Sonoma Community Center. Tina is right on: What a hoot. Entertaining, engaging, with snappy dialog that begs to be remembered. I’ll second what Tina said: you can’t miss this show. “Little Shop of Horrors” is a clear winner.

Directed to perfection by local kid grown to be a talented young man, Chris Ginesi takes this show to the top. I predict it will be one of the best shows of Sonoma Theatre Alliance’s spring and summer season.

Even as you take your seat in Andrews Hall, the stage backdrop, designed by Tony Ginesi, provides an awesome background. It’s a skid row scene, straight out of the urban jungle. This popular cult classic musical moves fast and furiously, with lots of action every minute and the stage set indicates that intensity.
