Musical Theater Fans RAGE Over ‘nepo baby’ Maude Apatow Being Cast In Little Shop Of Horrors

Many musical theater fans were furious at the cast of an off-Broadway revival of the classic show Little Shop Of Horrors.

Euphoria actress Maude Apatow, the daughter of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, makes her stage debut as lead actress Audrey.

When the ad appeared on Playbill’s Instagram account, the comments were filled with scathing remarks alleging she was hired out of nepotism.

One Instagram user declared the start of ‘baby nepo season’ while another quoted scene legend Patti LuPone: ‘Broadway is becoming a Disneyland for the rich’.

‘Nepo baby strikes again,’ one commenter sneered as another joked, ‘I had to check it wasn’t a meme’, and yet another wrote, ‘you kidding, ain’t- this not”.

“Oh well, I was worried that someone working for the role would get it,” one social media commenter said.

Another sneered, “Good to see nepo babies thriving when so many people can’t find jobs,” and yet another noted, “Cast casting AND nepo baby.”

‘Whyyyyy is that the choice?!?’ one Instagram commenter wondered as a young actress wrote in exasperation, “Yeah let me rip my diploma.”

“Can she even… you know what, never mind,” one social media user scolded in the comments. ‘Forget I almost asked.’

Maude also had a handful of defenders, including one who claimed that casting a TV personality helped “the whole cast and crew” to “keep their jobs a little longer.” It’s never really just one person.

Broadway has a long history of hosting showbiz legacies from the famous Barrymore dynasty of actors, including John, Ethel and Lionel.

Calling herself “OG Nepo Baby”, she complained, “The current conversation about nepo babies is simply designed to try to belittle, denigrate and hurt.”

Little Shop Of Horrors is a 1980s musical with book and lyrics by Howard Ashman and music by Alan Menken – a duo who became major players in the Disney renaissance writing the songs for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

The show follows a mild-mannered florist called Seymour who simultaneously yearns for the love of his life Audrey while dealing with a gigantic talking Venus flytrap in his care that survives by eating people.

Before Seymour discovered the plant’s man-eating tendencies, he named her Audrey II due to his feelings for the leading lady.

Little Shop Of Horrors first opened off-Broadway, then moved off-Broadway for a five-year run that began in 1982.

Based on a 1960 film, the musical features a beloved score heavily influenced by 1960s music, especially Motown.

A runaway success, Little Shop Of Horrors became the highest-grossing off-Broadway show, but Howard Ashman resisted the idea of ​​a Broadway transfer because he felt the project was home off-Broadway, according to the New York Times.

Little Shop Of Horrors shot to new heights of fame when it was adapted into a 1986 film directed by Frank Oz, who played Yoda in the Star Wars films.

Ghostbusters actor Rick Moranis led the cast as Seymour, while Audrey was played by Ellen Greene, who originated the role off-Broadway.

The musical finally hit Broadway in 2003, in a revival that during its run featured names like Billy Porter and Joey Fatone.

Audrey was played by Alice Ripley, who a few years later won the Tony Award for Best Actress for the Pulitzer-winning musical Next To Normal.
