Cabinet Conversations: Earthly and Otherworldly: How the Natural World Inspired a Cult Classic

Cabinet Conversations returns on Tuesday, April 2, 2024 at 1 p.m. ET on Ford’s Theatre’s social media channels to explore how the natural world inspires artistic exploration and our wildest imaginations. Debbie Crane (The Nature Conservancy), Marc Petrosino (Monkey Boys Productions), and Tim Helmer and Franc Alicea (The Paused Reviews Podcast) will discuss myths around carnivorous plants, how puppetry brings a “strange and interesting plant” to life and how Little Shop of Horrors has resonated over the years as a pop culture phenomenon. Join us on YouTube and Facebook Live for this engaging livestreamed conversation. (And don’t miss Little Shop of Horrors, running at Ford’s Theatre through May 18, 2024.)
