Ross will appear as Seymour Krelborn in the Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre’s production of Little Shop of Horrors, the comedy horror, rock musical, composed by Alan Menken and written by Howard Ashman, that satirizes science fiction, ‘B’ movies and musical comedy itself with music in the style of early 1960s rock and roll, doo-wop and early Motown.
Ross recently appeared as Tommy Gnosis in Boxcar Theatre’s production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (February-April, 2013). Hedwig, the front singer and would-be glam-rock star from East Germany, undergoes a botched gender-change operation in order to escape from the Soviet bloc, only to watch the Berlin Wall come down on TV after being abandoned in a trailer park in middle America. Hedwig gets involved with Tommy, an adolescent boy who steals her songs and becomes a stadium-filling musical act. Suffering from a broken heart and a lust for revenge, she follows Tommy’s tour, playing with her band (the Angry Inch) at tacky theme restaurants.
