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.

To put the biggest problem in contemporary terms, terms which doubtless occurred to many members of the audience besides just me: Is this a play about Zelensky or is it a play about Putin? You can characterize it as the story of a small army’s gallant victory against a much larger and better-equipped force, or you can talk about it as the story of an unprovoked invasion of a sovereign foreign land in service of an improbable abstract notion of the invading country’s imperial rights.
