A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation
when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh
blood. Soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed,
R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange
for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an
alien creature poised for global domination!
One of the
longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof
of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly
successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman
and Alan Menken
, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney's The Little Mermaid
, Beauty and the Beast
. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
never fails to entertain. A small cast, band and unit set make the other aspects of production a snap.
