Audrey II isn’t the only one with a soulful sound. The trio of Doo-Wop singers (Dorian McCorey and Jordan McCaskill) really brought to life the show’s 60s roots.

And we can’t forget Russell Rinker (‘The Music Man’, ‘Sweeney Todd’, ‘Pirates of Penzance’). Not only did he have a fantastic comedic performance as the dentist, he also wore many other costumes bringing to life half the ensemble for the show.
