Little Shop of Horrors

book and lyrics by HOWARD ASHMAN
music by ALAN MENKEN
based on the film by ROGER CORMAN, screenplay by CHARLES GRIFFITH
directed and choreographed by MARCIA MILGROM DODGE

A frightfully funny musical

On Skid Row, Mr. Mushnik plans to shutter his failing florist shop when his timid staffer Seymour presents an exotic-but-wilted flytrap named Audrey II. Convinced it will boost business, Seymour encourages Mr. Mushnik to display the peculiar plant, which Seymour successfully revives. As Audrey II 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 to keep his fame and fortune intact. 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.”
