On Skid Row, Mr. Mushnik plans to shutter his failing florist shop when his timid staffer Seymour presents an exotic-but-wilted flytrap. As the peculiar plant draws much-needed crowds to the shop, Seymour makes a disturbing discovery: It needs fresh blood (and lots of it) to grow — a secret that forces Seymour into a Faustian bargain. A hilarious mashup of science fiction, horror and musical theater, this nostalgic classic boasts Motown-inspired hits like “Git It,” “Suddenly Seymour” and “Little Shop of Horrors.”

In Karaj, Iran, educator Marjan strictly maintains an English-only method to ensure her four students pass the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with flying colors. After six weeks of trial, error and effort, what they discover about themselves may be the greatest learning curve of all. This Pulitzer Prize-winning new play tenderly explores the realities of the language-learning process and the parts of our identities that are lost and found along the way.

Our 2024–2025 Season

Dreams inhabit the heart of every story in our upcoming season. Immigrants dream of what their lives in America could be. Scrooge wakes from what feels like an all-too-real dream. Fairies and mortals meet in the dreamworld while others dream of escaping their current realities — or nightmares. Even the villains dare to dream. Like the characters in these stories, we can create, as Shakespeare says, “a most rare vision.” We hope you’ll join us as these dreams and visions unfold onstage.

In the news

The Star Tribune Editoral Board recently wrote an op-ed asking the community to continue supporting the Guthrie: “The Guthrie is more than a preserver of classical theater. It is a significant asset to the state and a major contributor to our quality of life. It expends considerable effort on diverse and accessible programing. It deserves robust public support.”
