Just in time for Halloween, the Lyric Stage company continues its 30th season celebration with a showing of theatrical hymns and horrors. Featuring the award-winning score of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, Little Shop of Horrors delights the ears with 60s rock and doo-wop sounds.

“Little Shop of Horrors remains a first-rate, horrifically funny musical tragi-comedy, putting its best tendril forward in its current production at the Lyric.”
Join Seymour and watch in fascinated horror as the strange little plant parked by the shop window evolves into a conniving, potty-mouthed carnivore. Led by renowned director and choreographer Rachel Bertone, the musical showcases a passionate cast, delectable costumes, and masterful puppetry that will have you questioning the implausibility of a man-eating plant.
Seymour actor Dan Prior invites curious crowds to this classic tale of caution:
“This is a funny, heavy, campy, dark and joyful show with a lot of heart. I want people to walk away having escaped into our fantasy… On top of that, I want people to hum the music while they ponder perils presented and steer clear of Seymour’s pitfalls.”
