Little Shop of Horrors: Skid Row finally comes back to life at the Westside Theatre on September 21 with the return of the delicious Howard Ashman-Alan Menken musical, now starring the always amazing Jeremy Jordan as the suddenly heroic Seymour, alongside original stars Tammy Blanchard and Christian Borle. Bop-shoo-bop!

Only an Octave Apart: Two of the most intriguing and celebrated performers around, cabaret superstar Justin Vivian Bond (aka Kiki of Kiki & Herb) and countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, come to Brooklyn’s St. Ann’s Warehouse, September 21-October 3, to present a showcase of eclectic music ranging from “Dido & Aeneas” to Dido.

Persuasion: Having made a theatrical splash with their adaptation of “Sense & Sensibility” (among other literary classics), the ultra-inventive company Bedlam now takes on another Jane Austen favorite. Do you need more persuading to buy a ticket? Performances run through October 31 at the Connelly Theatre.

Case Closed: The Life of Dorian Corey: True crime lovers, pay attention. This new murder-mystery, running through October 10 at the Gene Frankel Theatre, investigates who killed the mummy that was found in the closet of the legendary drag queen Dorian Corey after her death in 1993.

Christine Andreas: While she began her career decades ago as Broadway’s leading ingenue (playing Laurey in “Oklahoma!” and Eliza in “My Fair Lady”), Andreas has grown into one of the world’s most sought-after singers, known for both her incredible voice and her commitment to lyrics. She returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below on September 24-25. Be there!
