Little Shop of Horrors is a sci-fi spoof musical with a hilarious and fearsome plot and a collection of great songs – Oh! And lots of foliage!
Seymour Krelborn, the assistant at Mushnik’s Flower Shop in downtrodden Skid Row, becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers a strange and exotic plant. He names it Audrey Two in order to impress glamorous Audrey, the colleague he’s secretly in love with. Audrey Two quickly starts to wilt, putting Seymour’s job and dream future with Audrey at risk. Accidentally pricking his finger, Seymour discovers Audrey Two needs a little more than plant food to thrive. The plant grows into a bad-tempered, R&B-singing carnivore whose voracious appetite becomes increasingly difficult to satisfy. How far will Seymour go for the woman of his dreams?
With a musical score by Alan Menken, the Oscar-winning composer known for Disney’s A Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Pocahontas, Little Shop of Horrors original production ran on Broadway for five years.
“It leaves the audience feeling just like Audrey II between victims — ravenous for more” – The New York Times
