Opening April 20 and running through April 29, Little Shop of Horrors is the story of Seymour Krelborn, a meek flower shop assistant, who stumbles across a new breed of plant which feeds only on human flesh and blood. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Seymour as long as he keeps feeding it. A deviously delicious and eccentric sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre-goers for over 30 years, allowing them to indulge in some pretty naughty stuff, while leaving the theatre guiltless. Who could ask for anything more?
“Little Shop of Horrors has beastliness, crackling comedy and rock. Alan Menken's score and Howard Ashman's lyrics give cartoon vividness to this 1982 sci-fi spoof in which a weedy florist's assistant finds fame and murderous tendencies by nourishing a man-eating plant.” –The Observer
