Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's landmark musical Little Shop of Horrors, directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer, opened at The Westside Theatre to critical acclaim on October 17, 2019.

Seymour is a down-on-his-luck florist with a crush on his co-worker Audrey. When he discovers a mysterious - and voracious - plant, suddenly Seymour and Audrey are thrust into an epic battle that will determine the fate of the entire human race. With a book and lyrics by Grammy and Academy Award winner Howard Ashman (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast), and music by Tony and Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Aladdin, Newsies), Little Shop of Horrors first premiered Off-Broadway in 1982, where it made audiences laugh, scream, and give up gardening for good. The musical has since catapulted into a global phenomenon, with productions across the world from Broadway to London's West End, to Asia and Australia - plus a hit 1986 film adaptation directed by Frank Oz that starred Rick Moranis, Ellen Green and Steve Martin. Now, the musical makes its highly-anticipated return home to Off-Broadway, in an intimate new production directed by Michael Mayer that offers an unprecedented opportunity to get close - maybe too close - to an incredible plant with an insatiable appetite.

This production of Little Shop of Horrors, is the recipient of multiple theater awards and nominations including: four Outer Critics Circle Honors ("Outstanding Revival," "Outstanding Director": Michael Mayer, "Outstanding Actor in a Musical": Jonathan Groff, and "Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical": Christian Borle); The Drama League Award for "Outstanding Revival of a Musical," as well as "Distinguished Performance" nominations for Jonathan Groff and Christian Borle; two Drama Desk Awards for "Outstanding Revival of a Musical" and "Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical" for Christian Borle, in addition to an "Outstanding Actress" nomination for Tammy Blanchard and "Outstanding Scenic Design" nomination for Julian Crouch; the Lortel Award for "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Musical" for Christian Borle, as well as a "Best Revival" nomination, an "Outstanding Lead Actor" nomination for Jonathan Groff and an "Outstanding Supporting Actress" nomination for Ari Groover.

Joining Michael Mayer on the creative team are Choreographer Ellenore Scott (Head Over Heels Associate), Tony-nominated Scenic Designer Julian Crouch (Hedwig and the Angry Inch); Two-time Tony-winning Lighting Designer Bradley King (Hadestown, Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812); Emmy-winning Costume Designer Tom Broecker (Everyday Rapture); Tony-winning Sound Designer Jessica Paz (Hadestown); Emmy-nominated Puppet Designer Nicholas Mahon (Pyeongchang Olympics Opening Ceremony); Puppets by Monkey Boys Productions; and Music Supervisor, Orchestrator & Arranger Will Van Dyke (Pretty Woman).
