This past season Paul-Dean returned to a role he knows all to well. The voice of the flesh eating plant bent on world domination in the hit Broadway Musical "Little Shop Of Horrors." This production was a real treat for Paul-Dean and allowed him the privilege of working with veteran producer Todd Vigiletti and film director Brian Thomas Barnhart. The show ran at the beautiful Center Stage Theatre which feature a five star restaurant and dining experience before the show. Joining Paul-Dean on stage was Jill Morrison as Audrey. Jill had just returned from Broadway where she stared in the hit musical "Memphis" which she is currently touring with. David Kenny as Seymour. And Paul-Dean's partner in crime Eugene Collins as the puppeteer of the plant, providing the moves for Paul-Deans street wise R&B plant voice. Producer Todd Vigiletti even created a half price ticket night for PDM students to enjoy this professional live Broadway show.
