BWW Review: Breathing Fresh Air Into a Cult Classic with LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at St Photo BWW Review: Breathing Fresh Air Into a Cult Classic with LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Straz Center
by Drew Eberhard - Apr 9, 2022

Little Shop of Horrors is a horror comedy rock musical with somewhat of a cult following much like Hedwig & the Angry Inch, and Rocky Horror Show. Featuring music by Alan Menken and a book by Howard Ashman, the musical premiered off-off-Broadway in 1982, then moved off-Broadway to the Orpheum and enjoyed a five-year run. The musical is loosely based on the 1960s film. There are many known differences between the film and the musical which change the story. The musical does well at keeping up the darkly comic tone of the film but omits several different plot points. Skid Row is an area of Los Angeles officially known as Central City East, and the musical’s setting is set in Skid Row New York. Seymour’s mother is omitted from the musical and he is left an orphan under the care of Mushnik the flower shop owner. Orin Scrivello the sadistic dentist and overall villain of the story meets his maker so to speak at the hands of his own laughing gas, as opposed to being killed by dentist instruments like in the film. Orin’s abusive relationship with Audrey is used as a platform for Seymour’s need to kill him and to ultimately use the plant as means of disappearance.

“She wanted them the way she needed the earth and the flowers and the sky and the sea from her tower room and food and sleep and warmth and light and nights by the fire and poetry and the stories of going out in the world and almost being destroyed by it and returning to find comfort and the real meaning of freak.” -an excerpt from SNOW from THE ROSE and THE BEAST Throughout the last year, freeFall Theatre who is no stranger to inventive staging found a way to make use of their performance space by providing Outdoor Musical Revues. Allowing the company to recoup some lost revenue due to the global shutdown, freeFall took to the streets so-to-speak and provided the surrounding community with joy through song. By implementing a Drive-In aspect to live performance a stage was constructed in the parking lot adjacent to the courtyard, and patrons could purchase tickets or a “parking spot” and by dialing in on their car radio be able to hear what was being presented on stage.
