Little Shop of Horrors: Opening Night Photo Coverage

BroadwayWorld was on the scene as the stars came out to celebrate the opening of Little Shop of Horrors on October 2nd at the Virginia Theater.

Following the performance, the festivities moved over to "Somewhere That's Green" - The beautifully decorated
"Tavern on the Green."

It's the first-ever Broadway production of everyone's favorite boy-meets-girl, plant-eats-world phenomenon. Meek, mild-mannered, out-of-luck Seymour Krelbourn has just discovered an exotic little plant with a strange and unusual appetite. The plant is growing remarkably fast--and so is Seymour's love for Audrey, his co-worker at the flower shop. But she has a boyfriend...and the plant has a bloodthirsty secret that threatens the entire planet. The feeding-frenzy begins, as Seymour becomes a celebrity and the plant becomes a larger-than-life sensation.
