Rivertown Theaters Presents The Horrifically Hysterical Re-Make Of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
All you loyal followers of "Little Shop of Horrors," get ready for the live, bloodthirsty Broadway musical version of the cult classic, Roger Corman movie that was shot in two days, coming to Rivertown Theaters May 4 - 20.
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood musical sci-fi smash hit about a man-eating plant, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years! Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world. This charmingly tongue in cheek comedy features the meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn who stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination! Throw in a trio of sassy, high belting street-urchins, a nitrous oxide loving dentist and a cast of "Skid Row" characters, and you've got an evening of "over the top" musical fun for everyone.
