Event description
Taking place entirely over your phone, Brian Feldman sings “Little Shop of Horrors,” a capella – one song at a time, one call at a time.

About this Event

“On the twenty-first day of the month of September, in an early year of a decade not too long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced – as such enemies often do – in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places...”

From the award-winning artist who brought you Rent This Phone and Fiddler on the Phone, comes the next installment in the pay phone musical series – Little Phone of Horrors.

Taking place entirely over the phone of Washington, D.C.’s artist-driven plant and flower studio REWILD, this performance features Brian Feldman singing Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s 1982 cult classic horror comedy rock musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” a capella – one song at a time, one call at a time. Brian will be playing all the parts: Seymour, Audrey, Mr. Mushnik, Orin, Audrey II, Crystal, Ronette, Chiffon, and everyone else. (And unlike the two previous pay phone musicals, this time *you* make the call.)

REWILD’s phone will be answered by Brian 19 times on Saturday, September 21, 2019, beginning at 7:30 PM EDT (UTC−04:00). To listen to a song, call 1-202-981-6552. If at first you get a busy signal, please keep trying until you get through. No specific songs from the show may be requested, and will be sung in show order as calls are answered. Accepted calls will range in duration from ~25 seconds to ~5 minutes.

The use of any recording device, either audio or video, is strictly prohibited. (Photography and screencaps are okay.)

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI), sort of.

Press from previous pay phone musicals:

“He did Rent one year ... I loved it!”

(Rachel Sadon, Editor-in-Chief – DCist)

“Think “Hamilton” is a tough ticket? Try this exclusive performance. ... Chances are slim you’ll get [called], but where there’s a chance, there’s a possibility.”

(Michael Harrington, philly.com)

“Brian’s [“Fiddler on the Phone”] performance was lighthearted and fun.”

(Thomas Thorspecken, Analog Artist Digital World)

“Ring, ring, pick up and it starts: With no introduction or chat Feldman sings “If I Were a Rich Man” from the beloved and done to death “Fiddler on the Roof.” Feldman sounds like he’s singing into a Barbie microphone covered in My Little Pony horse parts.”

(Carl F Gauze, Ink 19)

“Yes: he takes requests.”

(Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post)
