Business blooms at Mushnik’s Flower Shop when nerdy assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II,” after his ditzy coworker crush. This jive-talking, R&B-singing carnivore, who promises unending fame and fortune as long as Seymour keeps feeding it BLOOD, has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over forty years!
Based on a 1960 American black comedy horror film directed by Roger Corman, Ashman and Menken’s sci-fi smash musical version of Little Shop of Horrors ranks as one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows. Alan Menken, while better known for his Disney film scores (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin), continues to compose award-winning stage musicals (including Newsies and the upcoming Mrs. Doubtfire with lyrics by Harvey Fierstein).
