Little Shop of Horrors is one of the most unique comedy musicals ever produced. The show is based on the 1960s film of the same name by Charles B. Griffith. Composer Alan Menken and lyricist and playwright Howard Ashman worked together to deliver this black comedy production. In 1982, the musical premiered on Off-Broadway, followed by a West End production the following year. Twenty years after its initial Off-Broadway run, Little Shop of Horrors finally went on Broadway. A North American tour followed the following year. In 2019, the musical was revived in Off-Broadway. This 2023, the revival will finally go on a national tour in the U.S. and entertain theater lovers with its black comedy!
Little Shop of Horrors tells the story of a florist named Seymour who cares for a Venus flytrap-looking plant that feeds on human flesh and blood. Seymour is in love with fellow florist Audrey, thereby naming the plant Audrey II. Together with the shop owner, Mr. Mushnik, the workers work on sprucing up the run-down flower shop. Due to Audrey II’s popularity, the shop is given a new life, with customers now coming in to check out the new attraction. While Audrey II thrives on Seymour’s blood and becomes a profitable asset, sinister characters like Mr. Mushnik and Audrey’s boyfriend, Orin Scrivello, try to take advantage of Seymour’s naiveness and kindness. Will Seymour be able to keep the plant alive now that he’s running out of blood? And will he be able to win Audrey’s heart?
