“Leave the audience… feeling just like Audrey II between victims – ravenous for more.” – The New York Times
Down-and-out skid row floral assistant Seymour becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. It isn’t long before “Audrey II” has grown from a harmless shrub into an ill-tempered, R&B-singing carnivore who promises Seymour fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite.
One of the longest-running off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. Hilariously funny and tuneful, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, Little Shop of Horrors is a musical to savor.
“This horticultural horror will have you screaming with laughter…” – New York Post
