Martin Star Tichina Arnold On Getting Her Big Break in Little Shop of Horrors

Tichina Arnold is probably best known for playing Pam (Gina’s best friend and Martin’s adversary) on the beloved ’90s sitcom Martin, but a few years before that, Frank Oz gave her her big break in Little Shop of Horrors as one of the singers in the Greek chorus. In this interview with Arnold at the American Black Film Festival earlier this year, she discussed how the cult classic, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this month and is apparently getting a remake soon, impacted her life and career at 15, as well as her love for performing in theater.
